    CVE ID         : CVE-2016-0794 CVE-2016-0795
    
    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.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in
    version 4.3.3-2+deb8u3.
    
    For the testing (stretch) and unstable (sid) distributions, these
    problems have been fixed in version 1:5.1.1~rc1-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libreoffice packages.
