    An anonymous contributor working with VeriSign iDefense Labs
    discovered that libreoffice, a full-featured office productivity
    suite, did not correctly handle Lotus WordPro files. This would enable
    an attacker to crash the program, or execute arbitrary code, by
    supplying a specially crafted LWP file.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed
    in version 3.5.4+dfsg2-0+deb7u6.
