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.
