Dia Filename Remote Format String Vulnerability

Dia is prone to a remote format-string vulnerability.

This issue arises when the application handles specially crafted filenames. An attacker can exploit this vulnerability by crafting a malicious filename that contains format specifiers and then coercing unsuspecting users to open the malicious file with the affected application.

A successful attack may crash the application or lead to arbitrary code execution.

This issue affects Dia versions 0.95 and earlier.
