[USN-223-1] Inkscape vulnerability

Martin Pitt
===========================================================
Ubuntu Security Notice USN-223-1  December 05, 2005
inkscape vulnerability
CVE-2005-3885
===========================================================

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 5.04 (Hoary Hedgehog)

The following packages are affected:

inkscape

The problem can be corrected by upgrading the affected package to
version 0.40-2ubuntu1.1.  In general, a standard system upgrade is
sufficient to effect the necessary changes.

Details follow:

Javier Fernández-Sanguino Peña discovered that Inkscape's ps2epsi.sh
script, which converts PostScript files to Encapsulated PostScript
format, creates a temporary file in an insecure way. A local attacker
could exploit this with a symlink attack to create or overwrite
arbitrary files with the privileges of the user running Inkscape.
