Description

A heap-based buffer overflow was found in the way vncviewer rendered certain screen images from a vnc server. If a user could be tricked into connecting to a malicious vnc server, it may cause the vncviewer to crash, or could possibly execute arbitrary code with the permissions of the user running it.
