Csound is vulnerable to a heap-based buffer overflow, caused by improper bounds checking by the pv_import() function in util/pv_import.c script. By persuading a victim to open a specially-crafted file, a remote attacker could overflow a buffer and execute arbitrary code on the system or cause the application to crash.
