A remote attacker could create a FIG image with specially-crafted color definition, and trick the local, unsuspecting user into opening it, which could lead to xfig executable crash or, potentially, arbitrary code execution with the privileges of the user running the executable. Public PoC:  https://bugzilla.redhat.com/attachment.cgi?id=463393 Flaw severity note: On systems with compile time buffer checks (FORTIFY_SOURCE) feature enabled, the impact of this flaw is mitigated to be only crash. Could you allocate CVE id for this? Thanks && Regards, Jan. -- Jan iankko Lieskovsky / Red Hat Security Response Team
