    Package        : libreoffice
    CVE ID         : CVE-2017-12607 CVE-2017-12608
    
    Marcin Noga discovered two vulnerabilities in LibreOffice, which could
    result in the execution of arbitrary code if a malformed PPT or DOC
    document is opened.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed
    in version 1:4.3.3-2+deb8u9.
    
    These vulnerabilities were fixed in Libreoffice 5.0.2, so the version
    in the stable distribution (stretch) is not affected.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libreoffice packages.
