Foresight: inkscape Print E-mail
User Rating:      How can I rate this item?
Posted by Bill Keys   
Previous versions of the inkscape package are vulnerable to attacks which would allow unauthorized system access at the permission level of the user running inkscape (usually non-root). One attack vector is by coercing a user into opening a specially crafted URI, while the other requires that the user be logged into a malicious jabber server using the client provided in inkscape.
