Ubuntu Security Notice USN-1525-1
August 09, 2012
A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:
- Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
Calligra could be made to crash or run programs as your login if it opened

It was discovered that Calligra incorrectly handled certain malformed
MS Word documents. If a user or automated system were tricked into opening
a crafted MS Word file, an attacker could cause a denial of service or
execute arbitrary code with privileges of the user invoking the program.
The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
Ubuntu 12.04 LTS:
After a standard system update you need to restart Calligra to make
all the necessary changes.
