Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2005-2013 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2006-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.
The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.
Javier Fernï¿½ez-Sanguino Peï¿½iscovered that Inkscape's ps2epsi.sh
script, which converts PostScript files to Encapsulated PostScript
format, creates a temporary file in an insecure way. A local attacker
could exploit this with a symlink attack to create or overwrite
arbitrary files with the privileges of the user running Inkscape.
Update the affected inkscape package.
