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.
