Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Mandrake 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.
