|Bugzilla:||734936: CVE-2011-3146 librsvg: object type mismatch leading to invalid pointer dereference|
The MITRE CVE dictionary describes this issue as:
librsvg before 2.34.1 uses the node name to identify the type of node, which allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a SVG file with a node with the element name starting with "fe," which is misidentified as a RsvgFilterPrimitive.
