Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2005-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2006-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.
The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.
A buffer overflow has been discovered in the SVG importer of Inkscape.
By tricking an user into opening a specially crafted SVG image this
could be exploited to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of
the Inkscape user.
Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
Update the affected inkscape package.
