Description Jan Lieskovsky 2012-04-11 14:34:26 UTC
Multiple format string flaws were reported:
[1] http://sourceforge.net/mailarchive/message.php?msg_id=28957051

in the way Flight Gear, the flight simulator, and SimGear, a simulation library components performed retrieval of various data chunk values from XML aircraft (FlightGear) or scene graph (SimGear) model data files. A remote attacker could provide a specially-crafted XML model file, which once opened by a local, unsuspecting user in FlightGear / in an application linked against SimGear, would lead to that particular executable crash.
