===============
1) Introduction
===============


Vypress Messenger is an intranet Windows application for exchanging
messages.

2) Bug
======


A visualization function in the program is affected by a
buffer-overflow bug exploitable using 776 chars in the field #1 of a
message.

Due to the intranet nature of the program is possible to exploit any
host in the LAN simply sending the malicious message to a broadcast
address.
