            Bug ID: 3557
           Summary: Remotely exploitable bug.
    Classification: Unclassified
           Product: Claws Mail
           Version: GIT
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: critical
          Priority: P3

I'm a Tails(https://tails.boum.org/) contributor, yesterday, we came across
anonymous posts on an image board where people were dropping bugs on Tails or
software we ship. Apparantly, Claws might be affected.

So in codeconv.c there is a function for japanese character set conversion
called conv_jistoeuc().  There is no bounds checking on the output buffer,
which is created on the stack with alloca().  

Bug can be triggered by sending an email to TAILS_luser at riseup.net or whatever.

Since my C is completely rusty, you might be able to make a better judgement on
the severity of this issue. Marking critical for now.
