Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA847] DSA-847-1 dia

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-847-1 dia

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Joxean Koret discovered that the Python SVG import test in dia, a
vector-oriented diagram editor, does not properly sanitise data read
from an SVG file and is hence vulnerable to execute arbitrary Python
code.
The old stable distribution (woody) is not affected by this problem.
For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.94.0-7sarge1.
For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.94.0-15.
We recommend that you upgrade your dia package.
