MDKSA-2005:187: dia Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
Check for the version of the dia package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

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

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 updated packages have been patched to address this issue.
