Inkscape is vulnerable to XXE attacks during

Impact: 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.

PoC: 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)

This already has a CVE reference in the page:

CVE References

2012-1102

To clarify that CVE was assigned to 
http://seclists.org/oss-sec/2012/q1/549

http://seclists.org/oss-sec/2012/q1/549

so this is probably an error, someone needs to tidy that bug up
and post links to the source/etc so I can see whats going on.

That's correct. CVE-2012-1102 has been assigned to the perl
XML-Atom issue.

Assuming the source of the slight confusion is this comment: 
https://bugs.launchpad.net/inkscape/+bug/1025185/comments/13

and the CVE id in the references.

But from the context of that bug, comment c#13 was used just to
reference patch for same issue in perl XML-Atom (CVE-2012-1102) 
issue, when searching a patch for inkscape.

Which later resulted into upstream inkscape commit: 
http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~inkscape.dev/inkscape/trunk/revision/11931

 referenced in (subsequent) comment c#14: 
https://bugs.launchpad.net/inkscape/+bug/1025185/comments/14

So CVE-2012-1102 identifier is for perl XML-Atom problem. And this 
(same XXE problem) being present in inkscape should get a new CVE
id yet.
