Updated python-cairosvg packages fix security vulnerability

Publication date: 06 Apr 2023
Type: security
Affected Mageia releases : 8
CVE: CVE-2023-27586


CairoSVG is an SVG converter based on Cairo, a 2D graphics library. Prior
to version 2.7.0, Cairo can send requests to external hosts when
processing SVG files. A malicious actor could send a specially crafted SVG
file that allows them to perform a server-side request forgery or denial
of service. Version 2.7.0 disables CairoSVG's ability to access other
files online by default. (CVE-2023-27586)
