MDKSA-2006:093: 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-2006:093 (dia).
A format string vulnerability in Dia allows 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.
