Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2005:187 (dia).

vector-oriented diagram editor, does not properly sanitise data read from an
SVG file and is hence vulnerable to execute arbitrary Python code.

The updated packages have been patched to address this issue.
