Description Sam Fowler 2018-01-29 05:36:45 UTC
The outputSWF_TEXT_RECORD function (util/outputscript.c) in libming through 0.4.8 is vulnerable to an integer overflow and resultant out-of-bounds read, which may allow attackers to cause a denial of service or unspecified other impact via a crafted SWF file.
