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

Multiple vulnerabilities were found in both LibreOffice and OpenOffice
that allow the remote execution of arbitrary code and potential Denial
of Service. These vulnerabilities may be exploited through multiple
vectors including crafted documents, link handling, printer setup in
ODF document types, DOC file formats, and Calc spreadsheets. Please
review the referenced CVE's for specific information regarding each.

Impact
======

A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted file
using the LibreOffice or OpenOffice suite of software. Execution of
these attacks could possibly result in the execution of arbitrary code
with the privileges of the process or a Denial of Service condition.

Workaround
==========

There is no known work around at this time.

Resolution
==========

All LibreOffice users should upgrade their respective packages to the
latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=app-office/libreoffice-4.4.2"
# emerge --ask --oneshot -v ">=app-office/libreoffice-bin-4.4.2"
# emerge -a --oneshot -v ">=app-office/libreoffice-bin-debug-4.4.2"

All OpenOffice users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot -v ">=app-office/openoffice-bin-4.1.2"
