CVE-2019-9849

Title: CVE-2019-9849 remote bullet graphics retrieved in 'stealth mode'

Announced: July 16, 2019

Fixed in: 6.2.5

Description:

LibreOffice has a 'stealth mode' in which only documents from locations deemed 'trusted' are allowed to retrieve remote resources. This mode is not the default mode, but can be enabled by users who want to disable LibreOffice's ability to include remote resources within a document. A flaw existed where bullet graphics were omitted from this protection prior to version 6.2.5.
