Description Jan Lieskovsky 2012-12-18 11:58:45 UTC
An XML eXternal Entity (XXE) flaw was found in the way Inkscape, a vector-based drawing program using SVG as its native file format performed rasterization of certain SVG images. A remote attacker could provide a specially-crafted SVG image that, when opened in inkscape would lead to arbitrary local file disclosure or denial of service.
