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 an attacker 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.
