Description


Luigi Auriemma reported that the XM loader of Cheese Tracker contains a
buffer overflow vulnerability in the
loader_XM::load_intrument_internal() function from
loaders/loader_xm.cpp.


Impact


An attacker could execute arbitrary code with the rights of the user
running Cheese Tracker by enticing a user to load a crafted file with
large amount of extra data.


Workaround


There is no known workaround at this time.
