Bogofilter Multiple Remote Buffer Overflow Vulnerabilities

Multiple remote buffer-overflow vulnerabilities affect Bogofilter. These issues are due to the application's failure to properly handle invalid input sequences and to validate the length of user-supplied strings before copying them into static process buffers.

An attacker may exploit these issue to cause a denial-of-service condition or possibly to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the vulnerable application. This may facilitate unauthorized access or privilege escalation.

Note that successful exploitation requires that Bogofilter be used with a Unicode database.
