MDKSA-2006:093: dia

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the dia package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2006:093 (dia).

A format string vulnerability in Dia permits user-complicit

attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly execute

arbitrary code by triggering errors or warnings, as demonstrated via

format string specifiers in a .bmp filename. NOTE: the original

exploit was demonstrated through a command line argument, but there

are other mechanisms inputs that are automatically process by Dia,

such as a crafted .dia file. (CVE-2006-2480)

Multiple unspecified format string vulnerabilities in Dia have

unspecified impact and attack vectors, a different set of issues

than CVE-2006-2480. (CVE-2006-2453)

Packages have been patched to correct this issue.
