|Gentoo Linux Security Advisory
Title: Calligra: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code (GLSA 201209-10)
Date: September 25, 2012
A buffer overflow vulnerability in Calligra could result in the
execution of arbitrary code.
Calligra is an office suite by KDE.
Vulnerable: < 2.4.3-r1
Unaffected: >= 2.4.3-r1
Architectures: All supported architectures
An error in the read() function in styles.cpp could cause a heap-based
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted ODF
file, 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 Calligra users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=app-office/calligra-2.4.3-r1"
