SUSE SLED12 / SLES12 Security Update : librsvg (SUSE-SU-2018:1288-1)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 109859


The remote SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.


This update for librsvg fixes the following issues :

- CVE-2018-1000041: Input validation issue could lead to credentials leak. (bsc#1083232) Update to version 2.40.20 :

+ Except for emergencies, this will be the LAST RELEASE of the librsvg-2.40.x series. We are moving to 2.41, which is vastly improved over the 2.40 series. The API/ABI there remain unchaged, so we strongly encourage you to upgrade your sources and binaries to librsvg-2.41.x.

+ bgo#761175 - Allow masks and clips to reuse a node being drawn.

+ Don't access the file system when deciding whether to load a remote file with a UNC path for a paint server (i.e. don't try to load it at all).

+ Vistual Studio: fixed and integrated introspection builds, so introspection data is built directly from the Visual Studio project (Chun-wei Fan).

+ Visual Studio: We now use HIGHENTROPYVA linker option on x64 builds, to enhance the security of built binaries (Chun-wei Fan).

+ Fix generation of Vala bindings when compiling in read-only source directories (Emmanuele Bassi). Update to version 2.40.19 :

+ bgo#621088: Using text objects as clipping paths is now supported.

+ bgo#587721: Fix rendering of text elements with transformations (Massimo).

+ bgo#777833 - Fix memory leaks when an RsvgHandle is disposed before being closed (Philip Withnall).

+ bgo#782098 - Don't pass deprecated options to gtk-doc (Ting-Wei Lan).

+ bgo#786372 - Fix the default for the 'type' attribute of the <style> element.

+ bgo#785276 - Don't crash on single-byte files.

+ bgo#634514: Don't render unknown elements and their sub-elements.

+ bgo#777155 - Ignore patterns that have close-to-zero dimensions.

+ bgo#634324 - Fix Gaussian blurs with negative scaling.

+ Fix the <switch> element; it wasn't working at all.

+ Fix loading when rsvg_handle_write() is called one byte at a time.

+ bgo#787895 - Fix incorrect usage of libxml2. Thanks to Nick Wellnhofer for advice on this.

+ Backported the test suite machinery from the master branch (Chun-wei Fan, Federico Mena).

+ We now require Pango 1.38.0 or later (released in 2015).

+ We now require libxml2 2.9.0 or later (released in 2012).
