The website has a nice list of security advisories:
http://www.libreoffice.org/about-us/security/advisories/

Users should be able to subscribe for new advisories via email.

Not sure if there's an actual demand for that - for the release
engineers, there's an internal security mailing list, and users usually
don't care. However, it might be trivial to implement this via the
Silverstripe notification feature which sends an e-mail everytime the
page is updated; alternatively via RSS.

Can you maybe chat with Cloph who knows Silverstripe best if there's an
easy way to automate this?

I tried to take a look at this but couldn't find a hint about where they are stored (page content). It isn't unimaginable that they are hidden in a protected table or whatever. Can I get access to this place to see whether I can do this or not? Of course, if it is not a problem.

#5 Updated by Jean Spiteri 6 months ago

With where are the advisories stored, I meant in the database or server. I don't have access to the server myself so don't know where to check for new content.

#6 Updated by Florian Effenberger 6 months ago

It's a regular website on our main CMS instance, but there's no external
access to the database. What would you need concretely?

#7 Updated by Jean Spiteri 5 months ago

Florian Effenberger: I have access to the newdesign.libreoffice.org VM. I don't have SSH access to the official website VM. Thus, I'd need (at a minimum) a copy of the security page the newdesign site. Let me know if I haven't explained myself well.

I don't get what you mean by "copy" actually. ;-)
If you go to the page and copy the HTML source, doesn't that help?
Or do you need the source code?

#9 Updated by Jean Spiteri 4 months ago

Florian Effenberger: Yes, I need the PHP source code of the page.

#10 Updated by Florian Effenberger 4 months ago

This is a regular Silverstripe page, so the source code would be the
parser - or do I get it wrong? ;-)

#11 Updated by Jean Spiteri 4 months ago

You're right. I don't know how is that I missed it. I'll try and work on it soon. Thank you for the patience.

No problem, thanks a lot for your work! Let me know if there are
questions ;-)
