 The impact of this vulnerability range form denial of service to file
disclosure. Under Windows, it can also be used to steal LM/NTLM hashes.

 During rasterization, entities declared in the DTD are dereferenced and
the content of the target file is included in the output. Command-line
used: "inkscape -e xxe-inkscape.png xxe.svg" (PoC files are attached to
the ticket)
