Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.55950
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-223-1 (inkscape)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-223-1 (inkscape)
Description:
The remote host is missing an update to inkscape
announced via advisory USN-223-1.

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 5.04 (Hoary Hedgehog)

The following packages are affected: inkscape

Javier Fernandez-Sanguino Pena discovered that Inkscape's ps2epsi.sh
script, which converts PostScript files to Encapsulated PostScript
format, creates a temporary file in an insecure way. A local attacker
could exploit this with a symlink attack to create or overwrite
arbitrary files with the privileges of the user running Inkscape.

Solution:
The problem can be corrected by upgrading the affected package to
version 0.40-2ubuntu1.1. In general, a standard system upgrade is
sufficient to effect the necessary changes.
