As far as I know only macros can really cause anything harmful. So if
you're settings are the default (disable macros) you're in the clear or
if you're settings are that you confirm every macro that is run, then
just be aware of who sends these documents to you.
Others probably know more but this is my understanding.
All the best,

I have a general question about security.
Not counting possible programming errors (such as buffer overflows), is it
secure to open *any* document with LibreOffice (with any of its components,
like Writer or Calc)?
Or is there a protocol by which a document could cause harmful code to be
executed? If so, can it be switched off?
I receive a lot of documents by e-mail from all different sources. I'm
wondering whether I should take additional precautions before opening them
