Nick Freeman has reported multiple vulnerabilities in Final Draft, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.
The vulnerabilities are caused due to errors when parsing certain tag elements within script files and can be exploited to cause stack-based buffer overflows via overly long strings in e.g. the "<Word>", "<Transition>", "<Location>", "<Extension>", "<SmartType>", "<SceneIntro>", "<TimeOfDay>", and "<Character>" elements.
Successful exploitation may allow execution of arbitrary code.
The vulnerabilities are reported in versions prior to 8.02.
Solution: Update to version 8.02.
