Mandriva Linux Security Update Advisory

Package name: dia
Advisory ID: MDKSA-2005:187
Date: October 20th, 2005

Affected versions: 10.2, 2006.0
______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

Joxean Koret discovered that the Python SVG import plugin in dia,
a vector-oriented diagram editor, does not properly sanitise data
read from an SVG file and is hence vulnerable to execute arbitrary
Python code.

The updated packages have been patched to address this issue.
