Description Josh Bressers 2008-09-26 01:00:07 UTC
From MFSA 2008-46:
Georgi Guninski reported a buffer overflow in the handling of cancelled
newsgroup messages. The error was caused by too small a heap buffer being
allocated to store message header information. This buffer could be overrun
by an attacker using a specially crafted message which could crash the mail
reader and potentially be used to run arbitrary code on the victim's
computer.
