I can no longer reproduce this, I saw in the changelog various security issues have been fixed. I assume this got fixed along the way, please close this bug report (I think I can't do this myself).

Running icotool on the attached file (icotool -l) will give a segfault. It is an out of bounds memory access / heap read overflow.
I'll attach outputs from valgrind and address sanitizer, they should give an idea what's going wrong.

This was found via american fuzzy lop.
