FTE Multiple Local Unspecified Buffer Overflow Vulnerabilities

It has been reported that vfte is prone to multiple unspecified buffer overflow vulnerabilities. These issues are due to a failure of the application to verify buffer boundaries while processing user supplied input.

Successful exploitation would immediately produce a denial of service condition in the affected process. This issue may also be leveraged to execute code on the affected system with root privileges, as this application is setuid root.
