Updated libreoffice packages fix security vulnerability

Publication date: 12 Jun 2020
Type: security
Affected Mageia releases : 7
CVE: CVE-2020-12801


This update increase Libreoffice to version
It fixes Security issues and add kf5 support.

If LibreOffice has an encrypted document open and crashes, that
document is auto-saved encrypted. On restart, LibreOffice offers
to restore the document and prompts for the password to decrypt it.
If the recovery is successful, and if the file format of the recovered
document was not LibreOffice's default ODF file format, then affected
versions of LibreOffice default that subsequent saves of the document
are unencrypted.

This may lead to a user accidentally saving a MSOffice file format
document unencrypted while believing it to be encrypted.

In the fixed versions, encrypted recovered MSOffice format documents
default to encrypted save.
