Description

Fixes a heap overflow in libgsf. When a specially crafted OLE document is opened, it can overflow a buffer possibly leading to arbitrary code execution.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
