Package : inkscape
Vulnerability : buffer overflow
Problem type : local (remote)
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CVE-2005-3737 CVE-2005-3885
BugTraq ID : 14522
Debian Bug : 321501 330894

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in Inkscape, a
vector-based drawing program. The Common Vulnerabilities and
Exposures project identifies the following problems:

CVE-2005-3737

Joxean Koret discovered a buffer overflow in the SVG parsing
routines that can lead to the execution of arbitrary code.

CVE-2005-3885

Javier Fernández-Sanguino Peña noticed that the ps2epsi extension
shell script uses a hardcoded temporary file making it vulnerable
to symlink attacks.

The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain inkscape packages.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.41-4.99.sarge2.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.42.2+0.43pre1-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your inkscape package.
