  <description>
    <p>
    Ariel Berkman discovered that Vilistextum unsafely reads data into
    an array without checking the length. This code vulnerability may lead
    to a buffer overflow.
    </p>
  </description>
  <impact type="normal">
    <p>
    A remote attacker could craft a malicious webpage which, when
    converted, would result in the execution of arbitrary code with the
    rights of the user running Vilistextum.
    </p>
  </impact>
  <workaround>
    <p>
    There is no known workaround at this time.
    </p>
  </workaround>
  <resolution>
    <p>
    All Vilistextum users should upgrade to the latest version:
    </p>
    <code>
    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose "&gt;=app-text/vilistextum-2.6.7"</code>
  </resolution>
