Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDKSA-2006:062
http://www.mandriva.com/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : dia
Date : April 3, 2006
Affected: 2006.0, Corporate 3.0
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

Three buffer overflows were discovered by infamous41md in dia's xfig
import code. This could allow for user-complicit attackers to have
an unknown impact via a crafted xfig file, possibly involving an
invalid color index, number of points, or depth.

Updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
