FastStone Image Viewer <= 7.5 is affected by a user mode write access violation near NULL at 0x005bdfc9, triggered when a user opens or views a malformed CUR file that is mishandled by FSViewer.exe. Attackers could exploit this issue for a Denial of Service (DoS) or possibly to achieve code execution.

Weakness

A NULL pointer dereference occurs when the application dereferences a pointer that it expects to be valid, but is NULL, typically causing a crash or exit.
