Racer Remote Buffer Overflow Vulnerability

Racer is prone to a remote buffer-overflow vulnerability because it fails to perform adequate boundary checks on user-supplied input.

Attackers can exploit this issue to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the application. Successful exploits will compromise the computer. Failed exploit attempts will result in a denial of service.

Racer 0.5.3 beta 5 is vulnerable; other versions may also be affected.
