Tin News Reader Buffer Overflow Vulnerability

The Tin news reader is prone to a buffer-overflow vulnerability. This issue is due to a failure in the application to do proper boundary checks on user-supplied data before using it in a finite-sized buffer.

An attacker can exploit this issue to execute arbitrary code on the victim userâ??s computer in the context of the victim user. This may facilitate a compromise of the affected computer.

Versions 1.8.0 and earlier are vulnerable.
