CVE-2012-2665 Multiple heap-based buffer overflows in the XML manifest
encryption handling code

Multiple heap-based buffer overflow flaws were found in the XML
manifest encryption tag parsing code of LibreOffice. An attacker could
create a specially-crafted file in the Open Document Format for Office
Applications (ODF) format which when opened could cause arbitrary code
execution.

Thanks to Timo Warns of PRE-CERT for reporting this flaw. Users are
recommended to upgrade to 3.5.5 to avoid this flaw
