Description

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200608-27 (Motor: Execution of arbitrary code)

In November 2005, Zone-H Research reported a boundary error in the
ktools library in the VGETSTRING() macro of kkstrtext.h, which may
cause a buffer overflow via an overly long input string.

Impact :

A remote attacker could entice a user to use a malicious file or input,
which could lead to the crash of Motor and possibly the execution of
arbitrary code.

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.
