When installing the version, I received the following from BitDefender warning of malware in the source code.C:\fakepath\2018-11-15-Bitdefender Security Center.bmp I also received multiple errors about unable to access various windows 7 files when installing. I selected the Retry for each and the installation succeeded.

If you download from the official Libreoffice website. I think that it might just be false positive.

Generally, when installing LibreOffice, it's recommended to disable antivirus software, as described at this FAQ. Of course, it doesn't hurt to reiterate that you only should use installer packages from trusted sources, like the official site.

That exploit relates to an OpenType vulnerability in Windows.
This is the correct font file:
NotoSerifGeorgian-Bold.ttf (49,880 bytes)
Dated: July 28, 2018, 8:11:40 AM.
I have checked that font in multiple LO versions and they are all clean.
These are the hashes on the clean font file:
MD5: 58d0c50e6deb3bb581f800bfa46db8d2
SHA-1: 4a25dd340c8bfc8d2c677032ac8acc44a94ed75c
SHA-256: 818c02f4a37ac7f1a4e4df122488e8284aeeb2e6760d58607187ba699426178f

If those match your file, you have a clean font file - and a false positive from your AV.

If those hashes do not match, you may have an infected file - where did you download the LO installer from?
