Synopsis: Moderate: librsvg2 security update Issue Date: 2011-09-13 CVE Numbers: CVE-2011-3146 The librsvg2 packages provide an SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) library based on libart. A flaw was found in the way librsvg2 parsed certain SVG files. An attacker could create a specially-crafted SVG file that, when opened, would cause applications that use librsvg2 (such as Eye of GNOME) to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code. All librsvg2 users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a backported patch to correct this issue. All running applications that use librsvg2 must be restarted for this update to take effect. SL6: i386 librsvg2-2.26.0-5.el6_1.1.i686.rpm librsvg2-devel-2.26.0-5.el6_1.1.i686.rpm x86_64 librsvg2-2.26.0-5.el6_1.1.i686.rpm librsvg2-2.26.0-5.el6_1.1.x86_64.rpm librsvg2-devel-2.26.0-5.el6_1.1.i686.rpm librsvg2-devel-2.26.0-5.el6_1.1.x86_64.rpm - Scientific Linux Development Team
