Service. These vulnerabilities may be exploited through multiple vectors
including crafted documents, link handling, printer setup in ODF document
types, DOC file formats, and Calc spreadsheets. Please review the
referenced CVE’s for specific information regarding each.
<impact type="normal">

latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose "&gt;=app-office/libreoffice-4.4.2"
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose
"&gt;=app-office/libreoffice-bin-4.4.2"# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose
