The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200704-10
(Inkscape: Two format string vulnerabilities)
Kees Cook has discovered two vulnerabilities in Inkscape. The
application does not properly handle format string specifiers in some
dialog boxes. Inkscape is also vulnerable to another format string
error in its Jabber whiteboard protocol.
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted URI,
possibly leading to execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of
the user running Inkscape.
There is no known workaround at this time.
