Description

Yeemp contains a flaw that may allow a remote attacker to overwrite arbitrary files and potentially take advantage of additional attack vectors. The issue is due to the program not properly recognizing and displaying file transfer encryption status. With a carefully crafted transfer request, an attacker could overwrite arbitrary media fils for contacts on a user's list. Additionally, this may allow an attacker to gain additional attack vectors against the netpbm and ogg123 invocations.
