 http://www.mandriva.com/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : dia
 Date    : February 20, 2009
 Affected: Corporate 3.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 Python has a variable called sys.path that contains all paths where
 Python loads modules by using import scripting procedure. A wrong
 handling of that variable enables local attackers to execute arbitrary
 code via Python scripting in the current dia working directory
 (CVE-2008-5984).
 
 This update provides fix for that vulnerability.
