Id Description
64475 Tex Live dvipng set.c Utility Array Indexing Error Memory Corruption

A memory corruption flaw exists in dvipng. The "SetChar" function fails to sanitize user-supplied input when the creator of a dvi file makes it index beyond the end of the array, resulting in memory corruption. With a specially crafted file, a local attacker can execute arbitrary code.
