This signature detects attempts to exploit a buffer overflow vulnerability in Artweaver which could result in remote code execution.

Specifically, the issue occurs when processing JPG image files. An attacker can exploit this issue through a specially crafted JPG image file
- Artweaver 3.1.4 is vulnerable; other versions may also be affected.
