<impact type="normal">
<p>
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted .irr
file, possibly resulting in the execution of arbitrary code with the
privileges of the user running the application, or a Denial of Service
(crash).
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>
There is no known workaround at this time.
</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>
<p>
