# Program: xwpe - Windows Editor v1.5.30a-2.1
# Description: Programming environment and editor for console and X11
# Tested and developed on:  Kali Linux 2.0 x86 - https://www.kali.org
#
# Description: xwpe v1.5.30a-2.1 and prior is prone to a stack-based buffer
# overflow vulnerability because the application fails to perform adequate
# boundary-checks on user-supplied input.

# context of the application. Failed exploit attempts will result in a
# denial-of-service condition.
