    Package        : libreoffice
    CVE ID         : CVE-2018-16858
    
    Alex Infuehr discovered a directory traversal vulnerability which could
    result in the execution of Python script code when opening a malformed
    document.
    
    For the stable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1:5.2.7-1+deb9u5. In addition this update fixes a bug in the
    validation of signed PDFs; it would display an incomplete status message
    when dealing with a partial signature.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libreoffice packages.
    
    For the detailed security status of libreoffice please refer to
    its security tracker page at:
