Jakub Wilk discovered that unace, an utility to extract, test and view .ace archives, contained an integer overflow leading to a buffer overflow. If a user or automated system were tricked into processing a specially crafted ace archive, an attacker could cause a denial of service (application crash) or, possibly, execute arbitrary code.
