|whitedune-swdegugf-format-string (39388)||High Risk|
White_dune could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on the system, caused by a format string error in the swDebugf() function. By persuading a victim to open a specially-crafted .WRL file containing malicious format specifiers, a remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to execute arbitrary code on the system or cause the application to crash.
