Scientific Linux Security Update : librsvg2 on SL6.x i386/x86_64

This script is Copyright (C) 2012-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security

Description :

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. 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.

Solution :

Update the affected librsvg2 and / or librsvg2-devel packages.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 6.8
