Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2018-05-07 10:08:20 UTC
From ${URL} :

An information disclosure vulnerability occurs when LibreOffice 6.0.3 and Apache OpenOffice Writer 4.1.5 automatically process and initiate an SMB connection embedded in a malicious file, as 
demonstrated by xlink:href=file:// within an office:document-content element in a .odt XML document.


@maintainer(s): after the bump, in case we need to stabilize the package, please let us know if it is ready for the stabilization or not.

Fedora tracker is completely useless...

I guess this will not be fixed, but a mitigation now exists:
"Since LibreOffice 5.4.7, and 6.0.4 in the 6.X series, end users or administrators can disable this functionality to automatically fetch such linked images via "tools->options->security->options->block any links from documents not among the trusted locations"
