GLSA 201209-05: LibreOffice: Multiple vulnerabilities

Title:LibreOffice: Multiple vulnerabilities
Bugs: #386081, #409455, #416457, #429482


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


LibreOffice is a full office productivity suite.

Affected packages

Package Vulnerable Unaffected Architecture(s)
app-office/libreoffice < >= All supported architectures
app-office/libreoffice-bin < >= All supported architectures


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).


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.


There is no known workaround at this time.


All LibreOffice users should upgrade to the latest version:

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

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

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