    A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:
    
    - Ubuntu 11.04
    - Ubuntu 10.10
    - Ubuntu 10.04 LTS
    
    Summary:
    
    SVG image rendering library has had flaws fixed.
    
    Software Description:
    - librsvg: Rendering library for SVG files
    
    Details:
    
    Sauli Pahlman discovered that librsvg did not correctly handle malformed
    filter names. If a user or automated system were tricked into processing a
    specially crafted SVG image, a remote attacker could gain user privileges.
