Buffer overflow in the TruncateString function allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (daemon crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted string.
To trigger this bug a custom language file is needed that is large enough to exceed the size of the buffer. No released version of OpenTTD has had strings nearly long enough to trigger this.
