images that permits a possible hacker to cause a denial of service via a
specially crafted XPM file.
Ludwig Nussel discovered an integer overflow in the way XPM images
are processed that could lead to the execution of arbitrary code
or crash the application via a specially crafted XPM file.
"infamous41md" discovered an integer in the XPM processing routine
that can be used to execute arbitrary code via a traditional heap
overflow.
