    A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:
    
    - Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
    - Ubuntu 15.10
    - Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
    
    Summary:
    
    LibreOffice could be made to crash or run programs as your login if it
    opened a specially crafted file.
    
    Software Description:
    - libreoffice: Office productivity suite
    
    Details:
    
    It was discovered that LibreOffice incorrectly handled RTF document files.
    If a user were tricked into opening a specially crafted RTF document, a
    remote attacker could cause LibreOffice to crash, and possibly execute
    arbitrary code.
    
    Update instructions:
    
    The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
    package versions:
    
    Ubuntu 16.04 LTS:
      libreoffice-core                1:5.1.4-0ubuntu1
    
    Ubuntu 15.10:
      libreoffice-core                1:5.0.6-0ubuntu1
    
    Ubuntu 12.04 LTS:
      libreoffice-core                1:3.5.7-0ubuntu11
    
    After a standard system update you need to restart LibreOffice to make
    all the necessary changes.
