Description Adam Mariš 2015-11-06 08:32:09 EST
A vulnerability in OpenOffice and LibreOffice settings of OpenDocument Format files and templates, allowing silent access to files that are readable from an user account, over-riding the user's default configuration settings, was found. Once these files are imported into a maliciously-crafted document, the data can be silently hidden in the document and possibly exported to an external party without being observed. 

Versions affected by this vulnerability are LibreOffice < 4.4.5 and OpenOffice <= 4.1.1.
