(Inkscape: Buffer overflow)
Joxean Koret has discovered that Inkscape incorrectly allocates
memory when opening an SVG file, creating the possibility of a buffer
overflow if the SVG file being opened is specially crafted.
An attacker could entice a user into opening a maliciously crafted
SVG file, allowing for the execution of arbitrary code on a machine
with the privileges of the user running Inkscape.
There is no known workaround at this time.
