While I’m sure the affected variables aren’t at the end of allocated heap, I definitely lack the required skills to produce a proof for remote code execution http://security.stackexchange.com/q/117394/36301 (I can put arbitrary data in paths but I don’t know how to exploit a heap overflow even without aslr and dep). Being too lazy, I didn’t get the required mark to go at the university which could have taught it (I had to go at an another one). So I won’t write it. If someone is interested in producing such proof … Please do it
