Hi,

Hello,
My request is  about information security.

Security issues have already been announced as, CVE-2011-2713
corresponds to a comment.
TDF as information, but said that it had been made LibreOffice
3.4.3 and 3.3.4  fixed.
According to NIST report
http://web.nvd.nist.gov/view/vuln/detail?vulnId=CVE-2011-2713,
3.3.4 is classified as a vulnerable version on this security issue.
If it is incorrect, could you formally request a modification of
information as TDF.
As a user, it is also a serious problem.

Thanks for reporting, I also think the information about 3.3.4 is
incorrect there.

Your mail has been forwarded to the security team.


Volker

It initially appeared that this flaw may be exploitable similar to
CVE-2010-3452, where an OOB Read caused Arbitrary Code Execution. However in
the case of this particular flaw, the junk data read is just parsed into an
internal representation of properties and the maximum harm this should
cause in
application crash (Denial Of Service).

Timeline:
- Reported to securityteam@openoffice.org on 25-July-2011
- Recieved a reply (with tdf-security@lists.documentfoundation.org
copied) on
the same date
- Release date changed with a few delays in between
- Release on 5-Oct-2011


Statement:

This issue results in an OOB read which is not exploitable for arbitrary
code
execution and can simply cause a crash. We do not consider this as a
security
issue.
