    Package        : dia
    Vulnerability  : missing input sanitising
    Problem type   : local (remote)
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CAN-2005-2966
    BugTraq ID     : 15000
    Debian Bug     : 330890
    
    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 old stable distribution (woody) is not affected by this problem.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.94.0-7sarge1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.94.0-15.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your dia package.
