Description Ville Skyttä 2006-05-20 05:27:06 EDT

Reproducer in GNOME Bugzilla, appears to affect 0.95 too:

The CVE notes that this may not be a vulnerability, but it is a reproducible
crash in any case.
Comment 1 Hans de Goede 2006-05-20 08:45:55 EDT
Fixed using the patch attached to upstream's BZ (after checking / verifying it).
The fix has been imported into CVS, build and pushed for FC-5 and devel.

I assume the Security Response Team will take care of the security announcement?

And yes, this most definetly is a vulnerability. The current example of the
string format vulnerability is rather harmless, but I _think_ it will be
possbile to exploit this by getting people to open malformed files with dia.
