WideChapter has been reported prone to a buffer overflow vulnerability when handling HTTP requests of excessive length.

It has been reported that the condition may be triggered remotely when a malicious website is rendered in the affected browser. Although unconfirmed, a remote attacker may exploit this condition to execute arbitrary instructions in the context of the user who is running the affected browser.

This vulnerability has been reported to affect WideChapter version 3, and prior versions.
