|Bugzilla:||846095: CVE-2012-3456 Calligra: DOC file rendering buffer overflow|
The MITRE CVE dictionary describes this issue as:
Heap-based buffer overflow in the read function in filters/words/msword-odf/wv2/src/styles.cpp in the Microsoft import filter in Calligra 2.4.3 and earlier allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted ODF style in an ODF document.
