The vulnerability is caused due to a pointer arithmetic error within the "load()" function provided by the XPM loader. This can be exploited to cause a heap-based buffer overflow via a specially crafted XPM file. Successful exploitation may allow execution of arbitrary code. The vulnerability is confirmed in version 1.4.2. Other versions may also be affected. ---- : http://secunia.com/Advisories/32796 Can you assign a CVE please?
