Title:RedHat Update for libreoffice RHSA-2012:1135-01
Summary:The remote host is missing an update for the 'libreoffice'; package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.
The remote host is missing an update for the 'libreoffice'
package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.

Vulnerability Insight:
LibreOffice is an open source, community-developed office productivity
suite. It includes the key desktop applications, such as a word processor,
spreadsheet application, presentation manager, formula editor, and a
drawing program.

Multiple heap-based buffer overflow flaws were found in the way LibreOffice
processed encryption information in the manifest files of OpenDocument
Format files. An attacker could provide a specially-crafted OpenDocument
Format file that, when opened in a LibreOffice application, would cause the
application to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the
privileges of the user running the application. (CVE-2012-2665)

Upstream acknowledges Timo Warns as the original reporter of these issues.

All LibreOffice users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages,
which contain backported patches to correct these issues. All running
instances of LibreOffice applications must be restarted for this update to
take effect.

Affected Software/OS:
libreoffice on Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 6),
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation (v. 6)

Please Install the Updated Packages.
