Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : dia (MDKSA-2006:062)

High Nessus Plugin ID 21177


The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing a security update.


Three buffer overflows were discovered by infamous41md in dia's xfig import code. This could allow for user-complicit attackers to have an unknown impact via a crafted xfig file, possibly involving an invalid color index, number of points, or depth.

Updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.


Update the affected dia package.
