Description Ville Skyttä 2007-05-06 02:35:06 EDT

"server/parser/sprite_definition.cpp in GNU Gnash (aka GNU Flash Player) 0.7.2
allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a large number of
SHOWFRAME elements within a DEFINESPRITE element, which triggers memory
corruption and enables the attacker to call free with an arbitrary address,
probably resultant from a buffer overflow."

Next release is due soon. I asked the list about a patch and whether 
it was fixed in HEAD.
Comment 2 Patrice Dumas 2007-05-12 16:00:16 EDT
