Ubuntu Security Notice USN-2149-1
17th March, 2014
A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:
- Ubuntu 13.10
- Ubuntu 12.10
- Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
Librsvg could be made to expose sensitive information.
- librsvg - renderer library for SVG files
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.
The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following package version:
- 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
To update your system, please follow these instructions: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Security/Upgrades.
After a standard system update you need to restart your session to make all
the necessary changes.
