Background ========== Dia is a gtk+ based diagram creation program released under the GPL license. Affected packages ================= ------------------------------------------------------------------- Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected ------------------------------------------------------------------- 1 app-office/dia < 0.94-r3 >= 0.94-r3 Description =========== Joxean Koret discovered that the SVG import plugin in Dia fails to properly sanitise data read from an SVG file. Impact ====== An attacker could create a specially crafted SVG file, which, when imported into Dia, could lead to the execution of arbitrary code. Workaround ========== There is no known workaround at this time. Resolution ========== All Dia users should upgrade to the latest version: # emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=app-office/dia-0.94-r3" References ========== [ 1 ] CAN-2005-2966 http://www.cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CAN-2005-2966 Availability ============ This GLSA and any updates to it are available for viewing at the Gentoo Security Website: http://security.gentoo.org/glsa/glsa-200510-06.xml Concerns? ========= Security is a primary focus of Gentoo Linux and ensuring the confidentiality and security of our users machines is of utmost importance to us.
