Description


Some vulnerabilities have been reported in Inkscape, which potentially can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.

2) A format string error exists in the Whiteboard Jabber client, which potentially can be exploited to execute arbitrary code.

Successful exploitation requires that the user is logged in to a Jabber server.
