Description

Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in OpenOffice and
Libreoffice. Please review the CVE identifiers referenced below for

Impact

A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted file
using OpenOffice, possibly resulting in execution of arbitrary code with
the privileges of the process, a Denial of Service condition, execution
of arbitrary Python code, authentication bypass, or reading and writing
of arbitrary files.


Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

Code:
# emerge --sync
      # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose
      ">=app-office/openoffice-bin-3.5.5.3"
   
All LibreOffice users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
      # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=app-office/libreoffice-4.2.5.2"
   
All LibreOffice (binary) users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
      # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose
      ">=app-office/libreoffice-bin-4.2.5.2"
   
We recommend that users unmerge OpenOffice:
