The kdegraphics packages contain applications for the K Desktop Environment . Scalable Vector Graphics is an XML-based language to describe vector images. KSVG is a framework aimed at implementing the latest W3C SVG specifications. A use-after-free flaw was found in the KDE KSVG animation element implementation. A remote attacker could create a specially-crafted SVG image, which once opened by an unsuspecting user, could cause a denial of service or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Konqueror. A NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in the KDE, KSVG SVGList interface implementation. A remote attacker could create a specially-crafted SVG image, which once opened by an unsuspecting user, would cause memory corruption, leading to a denial of service . All users of kdegraphics should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to correct these issues. The desktop must be restarted for this update to take effect.
