To quote the Inkscape site announcement:
October 9, 2005
Mentalguy has released new point releases of the past two versions of Inkscape
to correct two issues with arbitrary code execution when opening malicious
files. There are no known exploits for this issue, but if you use Inkscape on a
production machine in a manner that invokes files from arbitrary sources, you
may wish to upgrade.
Steps to Reproduce:
