Xfig and Transfig '.fig' File Buffer Overflow Vulnerability

Xfig and Transfig are prone to a buffer-overflow vulnerability because they fail to perform adequate boundary checks on user-supplied input.

Attackers may leverage this issue to execute arbitrary code in the context of the application. Failed attacks will cause denial-of-service conditions.

Xfig and Transfig 3.2.5 are vulnerable; other versions may also be affected.
