librsvg vulnerability
==========================================================================

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 13.10
- Ubuntu 12.10
- Ubuntu 12.04 LTS

Summary:

Librsvg could be made to expose sensitive information.

Software Description:
- librsvg: renderer library for SVG files

Details:

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.

Update instructions:

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
package versions:

Ubuntu 13.10:
  librsvg2-2                      2.36.4-2ubuntu0.1

Ubuntu 12.10:
  librsvg2-2                      2.36.3-0ubuntu1.1

Ubuntu 12.04 LTS:
  librsvg2-2                      2.36.1-0ubuntu1.1

After a standard system update you need to restart your session to make all
the necessary changes.
