<impact type="normal">
<p>
An attacker could create a specially crafted SVG file, which, when
imported into Dia, could lead to the execution of arbitrary code.
</p>

<workaround>
<p>
There is no known workaround at this time.
</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>
<p>
All Dia users should upgrade to the latest version:
