Is version 4.1.6 a security update? Or not? Installed version is 4.1.5.3.

PSI should be showing the 4.1.5 branch as secure according to this SA.

https://secunia.com/advisories/57485/

There has been a further vulnerability on 11th April affecting the 4.2 branch here https://secunia.com/advisories/57881/

which PSI clearly identifies.

The 4.1 branch is not affected by this vulnerability according to the vendor:

http://www.libreoffice.org/about-us/security/advis...

This is further supported by the release notes for 4.1.6 where there is no mention of security fixes.

Hope this helps.

Maurice,

It does help. I am aware that there is no need to upgrade, really, unless a current version of any program has been found vulnerable, and bug fixes are included to fix those sort of issues.

Thank you
