Security Bulletin

This security bulletin contains information about 2 vulnerabilities.

1) Permissions, Privileges, and Access Controls

EUVDB-ID: #VU43010

Risk: Medium

CVSSv3.1: 5.5 [CVSS:3.1/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:R/S:U/C:L/I:L/A:L/E:U/RL:O/RC:C]

CVE-ID: CVE-2012-6076

CWE-ID: CWE-264 - Permissions, Privileges, and Access Controls

Exploit availability: No

Description

The vulnerability allows a remote non-authenticated attacker to read and manipulate data.

Inkscape before 0.48.4 reads .eps files from /tmp instead of the current directory, which might cause Inkspace to process unintended files, allow local users to obtain sensitive information, and possibly have other unspecified impacts.

Mitigation

Install update from vendor's website.
