Description Chí-Thanh Christopher Nguyễn gentoo-dev 2011-10-07 14:53:18 UTC

RedHat security researcher Huzaifa Sidhpurwala identified a memory corruption vulnerability in the code responsible for loading Microsoft Word documents in LibreOffice. This flaw could have been used for nefarious purposes, such as installing viruses, through a specially-crafted file. The corresponding vulnerability description is CVE-2011-2713,”Out-of-bounds property read in binary .doc filter”.
Comment 1 Tomáš Chvátal (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2011-10-07 18:24:54 UTC
libreoffice is clear of the affected versions (i just forgot to remove 3.3.3 which i did now).

So just punt openoffice-bin or whatever you want to do with it...
Comment 2 Chí-Thanh Christopher Nguyễn gentoo-dev 2011-10-07 18:28:00 UTC
OpenOffice upstream is working on a fix. No ETA yet, though. When CVE-2011-2713 goes public and no fix exists, I will p.mask openoffice-bin.
Comment 3 Chí-Thanh Christopher Nguyễn gentoo-dev 2011-10-10 02:12:50 UTC
More information appears to be available, it is a DoS vulnerability. Adjusting summary and severity.
