Synopsis

The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.

Description

It was discovered that KDE-Libs did not properly handle certain malformed SVG images. If a user were tricked into opening a specially crafted SVG image, an attacker could cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user invoking the program. This issue only affected Ubuntu 9.04.
(CVE-2009-0945)
