Hi :)
I think the 3.4.x dealt with 1 issue and some other fairly early branch around there dealt with 
another.  AOO have just dealt with those issues in the last couple of months.  

I don't think either issue was "out in the wild" or actually affecting anyone but i am not entirely 
certain of that.  One of the often stated advantages of OpenSource is "more eyeballs on the code" 
and i have a feeling it was a dev that spotted the problem, in both cases, before it became widely 
known.  Certainly no-one reported problems on this mailing list and i first heard about them on the 
marketing mailing list (ie not an expected route).  

I think there is a security mailing list (which i am not on) and normal users could have reported 
directly to the devs without me knowing, but usually people bring their problems to this list 
before going to the others afaik.    

Also i have no idea how to find out what the problem was or how to try to take advantage of it on 
an ancient version of LO.  I think AOO made an announcement and someone copied that to this list 
but i would struggle to find the thread in the archives!  

So, all i do know (at least for fairly certain) is that there was 1 problem a couple of years ago 
and it got fixed.  

Sorry chap!
Happy hunting!
Regards from 

Tom :)

Hello guys,

I was just wondering, are there any know security vulnerabilities with LibreOffice 4.0.2. I want to 
test it but wanted to know if there were any concerns. I know that you are currently at version 
4.1.1 but wanted to use an older version.

I have done some research online into this matter but nothing was stated as far as security 
concerns were concerned.

I would check Bugzilla for any security concerns or reports.
