The specific flaw exists within how the application parses expressions used for determining formatting requirements. Due to the application not handling certain components of the expression correctly, the application will treat one of the structures as a different type and consequently treat one of its arguments as a pointer. This pointer is used to fetch a virtual method table and can be used to achieve code execution under the context of the application.
