Description :

The version of the IrfanView DjVu plugin (DjVu.dll) was found to be

buffer overflow vulnerability that can be triggered by tricking users
into opening a .djvu file with a specially crafted DjVu image that is
not properly handled during decompression. Successful exploitation
may allow arbitrary code to be executed on the affected host.
