(libgsf: Buffer overflow)
'infamous41md' has discovered that the 'ole_init_info' function may
allocate too little memory for storing the contents of an OLE document,
resulting in a heap buffer overflow.
An attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted OLE
document, and possibly execute arbitrary code with the rights of the
user opening the document.
There is no known workaround at this time.
