Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDKSA-2006:093
http://www.mandriva.com/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : dia
Date : May 30, 2006
Affected: 2006.0, Corporate 3.0
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

A format string vulnerability in Dia allows user-complicit
attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly execute
arbitrary code by triggering errors or warnings, as demonstrated via
format string specifiers in a .bmp filename. NOTE: the original
exploit was demonstrated through a command line argument, but there
are other mechanisms inputs that are automatically process by Dia,
such as a crafted .dia file. (CVE-2006-2480)

Multiple unspecified format string vulnerabilities in Dia have
unspecified impact and attack vectors, a different set of issues
than CVE-2006-2480. (CVE-2006-2453)

Packages have been patched to correct this issue.
