I agree, An announcement should be sent for this and for bug 192535. I've asked
the Fedora Security Response Team to post such an announcement in bug 192535,
but no response sofar.

Not at all I've also submitted the patch upstream where it has been committed
into CVS as far as I'm concerned the patch is under the same license as dia.

Feel free to add me to the CC.

I think this CVE was 0.95 pre release specific, but I'm not sure I did a diff
between the affected and the unaffected dia 0.95-pre releases and both the total
diff and the relevant part of the diff were small and the fix was small and
sane, unfortunatly I didn't keep the fix around as a seperate patch, but
backporting it if it does affect older versions should be simple.
