Medium Nessus Plugin ID 28034
SynopsisThe remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.
DescriptionA flaw was discovered in Inkscape's use of format strings. If a user were tricked into opening a specially crafted URI in Inkscape, a remote attacker could execute arbitrary code with user privileges.
