Security Vulnerability and Patch
This release of Apache OpenOffice Portable fixes a critical security vulnerability, CVE-2015-1774, found within Apache OpenOffice 4.1.1. This critical issue was patched in LibreOffice 4.3.7 in April but still remains unpatched in Apache OpenOffice. A patch was supposed to be forthcoming in Apache OpenOffice 4.1.2, but the future of that release as well as of Apache OpenOffice itself remains in limbo according to the July Apache Board Report from OpenOffice. As such, PortableApps.com has taken the initiative to produce a package of Apache OpenOffice Portable with the security vulnerability patched to ensure our users are not affected.
PortableApps.com Platform users will automatically receive a small under 1MB patch update to their existing Apache OpenOffice Portable install. Users of the app that do not use our platform can opt to download the full version or the small patch file via a link below the download buttons (just be sure you're already using Apache OpenOffice Portable 4.1.1 Repack or 4.1.1 if using the full language set as the platform won't do it for you). Users of the local version should follow the manual instructions included in the security announcement.
Apache OpenOffice Portable is a full-featured office suite that's compatible with Microsoft Office, Word Perfect, Lotus and other office applications. It's easy-to-use and feature-rich, performing nearly all of the functions you'd expect in an office suite, but at no cost. Learn more about Apache OpenOffice...
