Description

The librsvg2 packages provide an SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) librarybased on libart.A flaw was found in the way librsvg2 parsed certain SVG files. An attackercould create a specially-crafted SVG file that, when opened, would causeapplications that use librsvg2 (such as Eye of GNOME) to crash or,potentially, execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2011-3146)Red Hat would like to thank the Ubuntu Security Team for reporting thisissue. The Ubuntu Security Team acknowledges Sauli Pahlman as the originalreporter.All librsvg2 users should upgrade to these updated packages, which containa backported patch to correct this issue. All running applications that uselibrsvg2 must be restarted for this update to take effect.
