wxWidgets wxImage::Create() function buffer overflow
|wxwidgets-wximagecreate-bo (51516)||High Risk|
wxWidgets is vulnerable to a heap-based buffer overflow, caused by an integer overflow in the wxImage::Create() function. By persuading a victim to open a specially-crafted JPEG file, a remote attacker could overflow a buffer and execute arbitrary code on the system with elevated privileges or cause the application to crash.
Apply the appropriate patch for your system. See References.
