Details

It was discovered that QtSvg incorrectly handled certain malformed SVG
images. If a user or automated system were tricked into opening a specially
crafted image file, a remote attacker could use this issue to cause QtSvg
to crash, resulting in a denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary
code.

Update instructions

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following package versions:
