|Title:||Ubuntu USN-266-1 (dia)|
|Summary:||Ubuntu USN-266-1 (dia)|
The remote host is missing an update to dia
announced via advisory USN-266-1.
A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:
Ubuntu 4.10 (Warty Warthog)
Ubuntu 5.04 (Hoary Hedgehog)
Ubuntu 5.10 (Breezy Badger)
The following packages are affected: dia dia-gnome dia-libs
Three buffer overflows were discovered in the Xfig file format
importer. By tricking a user into opening a specially crafted .fig
file with dia, an attacker could exploit this to execute arbitrary
code with the user's privileges.
The problem can be corrected by upgrading the affected package to
version 0.93-4ubuntu2.1 (for Ubuntu 4.10), 0.94.0-5ubuntu1.2 (for
Ubuntu 5.04), or 0.94.0-11ubuntu1.1 (for Ubuntu 5.10). In general, a
standard system upgrade is sufficient to effect the necessary changes.
