Description

Stack-based buffer overflow in converter/ppm/xpmtoppm.c in netpbm before 10.47.07 allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via an XPM image file that contains a crafted header field associated with a large color index value.
