Subject: Re: [libreoffice-users] LibreOffice ''Insecure" per Secunia

Love LibreOffice, have happily used it and it's predecessor for years! 
One problem: Secunia is now saying the most recent LibreOffice update is ''insecure''.
Not sure what that means, not a techie, but I wanted to pass that along fwiw.

    What is the link to Secunia's statement. I have done a web search
and did not find what you said. Last summer, there was an issue. There
was also a solution: upgrade to a specified version. Recently, there is
the CVE-2012-0037 security issue. Upgrading to 3.4.6 if using 3.4.5 or
upgrading to 3.5.1 from 3.5.0 will solve the problem as well.
    Sounds to me that the most recent updates for LibreOffice are
secure for now. Possibly some time in the future, some other security
issues will arise. But this will give the developers time to continue
working on the code weeding potential problems before they become real


Sorry I don't know where to find a link, only report what has happened today when I ran Secunia and 
got the error message. When you mouse over the Install Solution option it says ''Program is 
Insecure or End-Of-Life and requires a security patch to be manually installed''. The Install 
Solution is the latest version of LibreOffice but when that's installed, Secunia immediately 
reports it's an Insecure Program. I haven't come across this error before with LibreOffice so 
wanted to report it was popping up. Like I said I'm not a techie but just trying to be helpful.
