Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.56804
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-286-1 (dia)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-286-1 (dia)
Description:
The remote host is missing an update to dia
announced via advisory USN-286-1.

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 5.04 (Hoary Hedgehog)
Ubuntu 5.10 (Breezy Badger)

The following packages are affected: dia dia-gnome

Several format string vulnerabilities have been discovered in dia. By
tricking a user into opening a specially crafted dia file, or a
file with a specially crafted name, this could be exploited to execute
arbitrary code with the user's privileges.

Solution:
The problem can be corrected by upgrading the affected package to
version 0.94.0-5ubuntu1.3 (for Ubuntu 5.04), or 0.94.0-11ubuntu1.2
(for Ubuntu 5.10). After doing a standard system upgrade you need to
restart dia to effect the necessary changes.
