Xfig '.fig' File Color Definition Stack Buffer Overflow Vulnerability

Xfig is prone to a stack-based buffer-overflow vulnerability because it 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 3.2.5 is vulnerable; other versions may also be affected.
