Secunia reports:

Some vulnerabilities have been reported in Dia, which potentially can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.

The vulnerabilities are caused due to boundary errors within the XFig import plugin. This can be exploited to cause buffer overflows and may allow arbitrary code execution when a specially-crafted FIG file is imported.
