Updated svgsalamander package fixes security vulnerability:

A vulnerability was found in the svgsalamander library. If the library is being
used in a web application for processing user supplied SVG files then the app
is vulnerable to SSRF (CVE-2017-5617).


Updated packages in core/updates_testing:

from svgsalamander-1.1.2-1.mga6.src.rpm

Comment 3 Herman Viaene 2019-04-16 16:22:17 CEST
MGA6-32 MATE on IBM Thinkpad R50e
No installation issues
Tried to find some testcase, but all I find delves too deep for me in Java.
# urpmq --whatrequires svgsalamander

So installed josm, but when I try to use it from the CLI it first throws pages of errors, finally starts up, but loading any of the maps available from the menu just results in a black screen even after 20 min.
Of course in such case, there are no refs to svgsalamander in the trace.
Clean install is all I get at the moment.

Clean install and upgrade are sufficient.
Comment 5 Herman Viaene 2019-04-17 09:57:32 CEST
OK, will be done.

Installed and tested without issue.

Tested using josm. There were some error messages when starting josm but nothing related to svgsalamander.
