High Nessus Plugin ID 21604
SynopsisThe remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionSeveral format string vulnerabilities have been discovered in dia. By tricking a user into opening a specially crafted dia file, or a file with a specially crafted name, this could be exploited to execute arbitrary code with the user's privileges.
Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
