SVG Support

The reason SVG is not part of WordPress core yet is that there are security concerns to be addressed. SVG is an XML file, which by itself opens it up to different vulnerabilities of which normal image formats aren’t affected. To allow you upload custom icons, we needed to add SVG to WordPress supported mime types. Although it works, it's a little bit risky. Best and, what's more important, safe way to allow SVG uploads is to use the Safe SVG plugin. The theme is fully compatible with it, so when you enable the Safe SVG plugin it will take full control over uploaded SVGs, the same protect your site against SVG/XML vulnerabilities.

More detailed info about SVG security concerns you will find in the How to Safely Enable WordPress SVG Support article.
