- ---------------------------------------------------------------------

1. Summary:

Updated Dia packages that fix several buffer overflow bugs are now available.

This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red
Hat Security Response Team.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS version 4 - i386, ia64, ppc, s390, s390x, x86_64

Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 4 - i386, ia64, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 4 - i386, ia64, x86_64

3. Problem description:

The Dia drawing program is designed to draw various types of diagrams.

Several format string flaws were found in the way dia displays certain
messages. If an attacker is able to trick a Dia user into opening a
carefully crafted file, it may be possible to execute arbitrary code as the
user running Dia. (CVE-2006-2453, CVE-2006-2480)

Users of Dia should update to these erratum packages, which contain
backported patches and are not vulnerable to these issues.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via Red Hat Network.  To use Red Hat Network,
launch the Red Hat Update Agent with the following command:

up2date

This will start an interactive process that will result in the appropriate
RPMs being upgraded on your system.

5. Bug IDs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/):
