Secunia Research has discovered two vulnerabilities in Oracle Outside In Technology, which can be exploited by malicious people to cause a DoS (Denial of Service) and compromise an application using the SDK.

1) An error in the vstga.dll when processing TGA files can be exploited to cause an out-of-bounds write memory access.
