|Summary:||The remote host is missing an update for the 'librsvg2'; package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.|
The remote host is missing an update for the 'librsvg2'
package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.
The librsvg2 packages provide an SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) library
based on libart.
A flaw was found in the way librsvg2 parsed certain SVG files. An attacker
could create a specially-crafted SVG file that, when opened, would cause
applications that use librsvg2 (such as Eye of GNOME) to crash or,
potentially, execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2011-3146)
Red Hat would like to thank the Ubuntu Security Team for reporting this
issue. The Ubuntu Security Team acknowledges Sauli Pahlman as the original
All librsvg2 users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain
a backported patch to correct this issue. All running applications that use
librsvg2 must be restarted for this update to take effect.
librsvg2 on Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 6),
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (v. 6),
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation (v. 6)
Please Install the Updated Packages.
