Ubuntu 12.04 LTS / 12.10 : gtk+3.0 update (USN-2149-2)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 73078


The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.


USN-2149-1 fixed a vulnerability in librsvg. This update provides a compatibility fix for GTK+ to work with the librsvg security update.

It was discovered that librsvg would load XML external entities by default. If a user were tricked into viewing a specially crafted SVG file, an attacker could possibly obtain access to arbitrary files.

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


Update the affected libgtk-3-0 package.
