Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2006:062 (dia).
Three buffer overflows were discovered by infamous41md in dia's xfig import
code. This could allow for user-complicit attackers to have an unknown impact
via a crafted xfig file, possibly involving an invalid color index, number of
points, or depth. Updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
