A vulnerability has been discovered in Power Tab Editor, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.
The vulnerability is caused due to a boundary error when processing Power Tab Score (*.ptb) files. This can be exploited to cause a stack-based buffer overflow by e.g. tricking a user into opening a specially crafted Power Tab Score file.
The vulnerability is confirmed in version 1.7.0 build 80. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Do not open untrusted *.ptb files. Use another application.
