A vulnerability has been discovered in Audacity, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.
The vulnerability is caused due to a boundary error within the "String_parse::get_nonspace_quoted()" function in lib-src/allegro/strparse.cpp. This can be exploited to cause a stack-based buffer overflow by e.g. tricking a user into importing a specially crafted *.gro file.
The vulnerability is confirmed in version 1.2.6. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Do not import untrusted *.gro files.
