The remote Windows host contains an application with multiple buffer
The version of XnView installed on the remote Windows host is earlier
than 1.98.6. As such, it is reportedly affected by multiple buffer
overflow vulnerabilities. These vulnerabilities are related to
processing FPX and PCX files, and can also be triggered by certain
directory names when browsing folders within the program. An attacker
could exploit these vulnerabilities by tricking a victim into opening
a specially crafted file that could allow for arbitrary code to be
executed in the context of the application.
