Debian DLA-1278-1 : librsvg security update

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 106779


The remote Debian host is missing a security update.


It was discovered that there was an input validation vulnerability in the librsvg renderer library that could result in data being leaked to remote attackers via a specially crafted file.

For Debian 7 'Wheezy', this issue has been fixed in librsvg version 2.36.1-2+deb7u3.

We recommend that you upgrade your librsvg packages.

NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.


Upgrade the affected packages.
