MY number 1 alternative to Microsoft Office. Frankly it handles docx files created by Word better than Word does. LibreOffice does not create 100s of styles behind your back that you don't discover until you try to import it into a Publishing app like Quark etc.

Ok very Simple. Im a builder and I do my own estimates. In Libre any Table you create can be used as a spreadsheet without opening a separate Program allowing you to change items in an instant and see the immediate total. This alone in my case blow Office out of the water.

It's fixed! After months of waiting and an not-good-enough first attempt, the Python script vulnerability in LibreOffice has for-realz been fully patched. It is CVE-2019-9854. Details are available here: https://www.libreoffice.org/about-us/security/advisories/cve-2019-9854/ - - Also patched was CVE-2019-9855, applicable only to Windows users.

While we wait for Son-Of-CVE-2019-9848 to be patched... It turns out that LibreOffice 6.3.4 (6.3.0.4) patched three further security flaws, as per new announcements released yesterday: • CVE-2019-9850 • CVE-2019-9851 • CVE-2019-9852 https://www.libreoffice.org/about-us/security/advisories/

So I wrote to the Devs and heard back from them, for which I am grateful. Here is their response:

"It is not incorrect to state that CVE-2019-9848 was patched in 6.2.5.2, but it is fair to state that it turns out the solution is not totally sufficient and there is an additional problem with the solution.

"A new advisory will be issued with a new CVE number for the follow-up issue when the solution is ready. We're working on making it available."

Stay tuned.... Oh and continue to apply the workaround on this latest version of LibreOffice.

This situation sucks. So I'm giving LibreOffice a crudy review score as a direct result. Rather than put everyone to sleep with a TL;DR, please go through the comments below for the backstory. Short Version: Lingering on has been CVE-2018-16858, a 'LibreLogo arbitrary script execution' security flaw. It was supposed to be patched in v6.2.5.2 but the patch FAILed. The developer promised a working patch in THIS version. And yet there is NO RECORD of that patch having been applied. RESULT: Utterly confused and potentially AT RISK users. That's bad. * To be safe, use the workaround I posted previously. Meanwhile: OpenOffice suffers from the same security flaw and Apache has done nothing to address it. I'm ready to switch back to NeoOffice, which does NOT have the security flaw. But you have to pay $15 for a full version.

Does anyone know? Has v6.3.0.4 been successfully patched? Is it safe to use as is, or is it still wise to delete the pydoc.py file?

No sign of any patch! I've scoured the dev's website. See my review above.
--> YES, rename or delete pydoc.py until further notice. Shameful situation.

Not MU's fault. This is now a long standing blunder (of minor proportions) going on with the LibreOffice development team. There are four places to find the version number of an app. Two of them say "6.3.4" and two of them say "6.3.0.4". No doubt this is due to two different coders on the team who each have their own preferred iteration system, and the two of them 'don't talk'. They may have cubicles next to each other (seen that IRL!) or they may be at opposite ends of the world. In any case, it's stupid. Expect this blunder to continue.

DANGER! Patch FAIL! Version 6.2.5.2 of LibreOffice did NOT successfully patch CVE-2018-16858. It is UNSAFE TO USE! LibreOffice handlers defend suite's security after 'unfortunately partial' patch https://www.theregister.co.uk/2019/08/02/document_foundation_libreoffice_security/ There is a workaround to use in the meantime. It's provided in the article I linked in my previous post. For the sake of simplicity, here is where to find the offending file inside ALL versions of LibreOffice. The file name is "pydoc.py" and you want to either RENAME it or simply DELETE it. This will hurt nothing but the functionality of python scripts in LibreOffice, in my experience. If you don't already know how to navigate into application package Contents, then *do not do this!* You have been warned! LibreOffice.app/ Contents/ Frameworks/ LibreOfficePython.framework/ Versions/ 3.5/ lib/ python3.5/ pydoc.py Notes: • This security hole was made public in October, 2018. Seriously. • Meanwhile, Apache has not addressed the problem AT ALL in OpenOffice! But the same workaround is effective. • I have established that this security hole is NOT present in NeoOffice, the other branch of OpenOffice for Mac. It does not use the offending Python file. But note that NeoOffice costs $15/$30, depending where you buy it. It does offer a trial 'Viewer' version.
