GLSA-200510-06 : Dia: Arbitrary code execution through SVG import
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 19976
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200510-06 (Dia: Arbitrary code execution through SVG import)
Joxean Koret discovered that the SVG import plugin in Dia fails to properly sanitise data read from an SVG file.
An attacker could create a specially crafted SVG file, which, when imported into Dia, could lead to the execution of arbitrary code.
There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionAll Dia users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=app-office/dia-0.94-r3'
