Description

Four potentially harmful bugs causing crashes and stack corruption were detected in FreeXL by American Fuzzy Lop and are solved in this release.

Please note: such issues are never realistically expected to be encountered in real world XLS spreadsheets, anyway some purposely forged XLS document could be used as a 'poisoned bait' to maliciously open a security breach.

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.
