Synopsis
========

Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in LibreOffice, allowing
remote attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a Denial of
Service.

Background
==========

LibreOffice is a full office productivity suite.

Affected packages
=================

    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     Package              /     Vulnerable     /            Unaffected
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
  1  app-office/libreoffice      < 3.5.5.3                 >= 3.5.5.3
  2  app-office/libreoffice-bin
                                 < 3.5.5.3                 >= 3.5.5.3
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     2 affected packages

Description
===========

Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in LibreOffice:

* The Microsoft Word Document parser contains an out-of-bounds read
  error (CVE-2011-2713).
* The Raptor RDF parser contains an XML External Entity expansion error
  (CVE-2012-0037).
* The graphic loading parser contains an integer overflow error which
  could cause a heap-based buffer overflow (CVE-2012-1149).
* Multiple errors in the XML manifest handling code could cause a
  heap-based buffer overflow (CVE-2012-2665).

Impact
======

A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted
document file using LibreOffice, possibly resulting in execution of
arbitrary code with the privileges of the process or a Denial of
Service condition.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All LibreOffice users should upgrade to the latest version:

  # emerge --sync
  # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=app-office/libreoffice-3.5.5.3"

All users of the LibreOffice binary package should upgrade to the
latest version:

  # emerge --sync
  # emerge --ask --oneshot -v ">=app-office/libreoffice-bin-3.5.5.3"
