can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.

The vulnerability is caused due to a boundary error when importing

buffer overflow by tricking a user into importing a specially crafted
palette (*.pal) file.

Successful exploitation allows execution of arbitrary code.

The vulnerability is confirmed in version 4.00. Other versions may
also be affected.
