    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 Fern�ndez-Sanguino Pe�a 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.
