Berlin, 26 September 2023 – The Document Foundation is releasing LibreOffice 7.6.2 Community and LibreOffice 7.5.7 Community ahead of schedule to address a security issue known as CVE 2023-4863, which originates in a widely used code library known as libwebp, created by Google more than a decade ago to render the then-new WebP graphics format .
In addition to the CVE, the two new versions fix other bugs and regressions and are available immediately from www.libreoffice.org/download . All users of LibreOffice are encouraged to update their current version as soon as possible.
The minimum requirements for proprietary operating systems are Microsoft Windows 7 SP1 and Apple MacOS 10.15.
For enterprise-class deployments, TDF strongly recommends the LibreOffice Enterprise family of applications from ecosystem partners – for desktop, mobile and cloud – with a wide range of dedicated value-added features and other benefits such as SLAs: www.libreoffice.org/download/libreoffice-in-business/.

LibreOffice users, free software advocates and community members can support the Document Foundation by making a donation at www.libreoffice.org/donate.
