Description

The SwCTBWrapper::Read function in sw/source/filter/ww8/ww8toolbar.cxx in LibreOffice before 5.4.6.1 and 6.x before 6.0.2.1 does not validate a customizations index, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (heap-based buffer overflow with write access) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted document that contains a certain Microsoft Word record.

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
