Oracle Linux 6 : librsvg2 (ELSA-2011-1289)

This script is Copyright (C) 2013-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Oracle Linux host is missing one or more security updates.

Description :

From Red Hat Security Advisory 2011:1289 :

Updated librsvg2 packages that fix one security issue are now
available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having
moderate security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS)
base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from
the CVE link in the References section.

The librsvg2 packages provide an SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics)
library based on libart.

A flaw was found in the way librsvg2 parsed certain SVG files. An
attacker could create a specially crafted SVG file that, when opened,
would cause applications 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
this issue. The Ubuntu Security Team acknowledges Sauli Pahlman as the
original reporter.

All librsvg2 users should upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain a backported patch to correct this issue. All running
applications that use librsvg2 must be restarted for this update to
take effect.
