librsvg vulnerability

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 23.04
- Ubuntu 22.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 20.04 LTS


librsvg could be made to expose sensitive information.

Software Description:
- librsvg: renderer library for SVG files


Zac Sims discovered that librsvg incorrectly handled decoding URLs. A
remote attacker could possibly use this issue to read arbitrary files by
using an include element.

Update instructions:

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