Allele Security Alert
Remote bullet graphics retrieved in ‘stealth mode’
The Document Foundation
LibreOffice versions before 6.2.5
LibreOffice version 6.2.5
Proof of concept
LibreOffice has a ‘stealth mode’ in which only documents from locations deemed ‘trusted’ are allowed to retrieve remote resources. This mode is not the default mode, but can be enabled by users who want to disable LibreOffice’s ability to include remote resources within a document. A flaw existed where bullet graphics were omitted from this protection prior to version 6.2.5.
If there is any error in this alert or you wish a comprehensive analysis, let us know.
