This one took me a bit by surprise. Debian released an advisory for OOo

public yesterday, and was fixed in upstream 188.8.131.52, but it's not noted
on the LibreOffice web site at all.
Does anyone have any further details on these issues? I just filed a
bug in our bugzilla (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=872350)
with the following description/references which are all I've been able
to find so far.

Any further information anyone has would be sincerely appreciated.
I am not sure I am allowed to forward the quoted tdf-security mail

by surprise then);
(The whole OpenOffice/LibreOffice security issue handling is not really
good ... long embargoes that get extended wildly even though fixes are in
public GIT already, etc )
