Subject: HT Editor 2.0.20 buffer overflows CVE-2012-5867

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

We have assigned CVE-2012-5867 for the stack-based buffer overflows in
the sys_common_canonicalize function in vfs.cc in HT Editor (aka hte):

  http://www.exploit-db.com/exploits/22683/

The disclosure says "To be honnest, it may be the only interest, as
the binary is not SUID." We have not determined what realistic use
cases lead to sys_common_canonicalize function calls, other than cases
in which the user interactively enters a filename, or interactively
selects a directory.
