Vulnerability Assessment Details

RHSA-2006-0541: dia

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the dia packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


Updated Dia packages that fix several buffer overflow bugs are now
available.

This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red
Hat Security Response Team.

The Dia drawing program is designed to draw various types of diagrams.

Several format string flaws were found in the way dia displays certain
messages. If a possible hacker is able to trick a Dia user into opening a
carefully crafted file, it may be possible to execute arbitrary code as the
user running Dia. (CVE-2006-2453, CVE-2006-2480)

Users of Dia should update to these erratum packages, which contain
backported patches and are not vulnerable to these issues.
