Inkscape Client Malicious Jabber Server Format String Vulnerability

The Inkscape client application is prone to a format-string vulnerability.

This issue presents itself because the application fails to properly sanitize user-supplied input before passing it as the format specifier to a formatted-printing function.

A successful attack may crash the application or possibly lead to arbitrary code execution. This may facilitate unauthorized access or privilege escalation in the context of the user running the application.
