Package : typespeed
Vulnerability : buffer overflow
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CVE-2006-1515

Niko Tyni discovered a buffer overflow in the processing of network
data in typespeed, a game for testing and improving typing speed, which
could lead to the execution of arbitrary code.

For the old stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.4.1-2.4.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.4.4-8sarge1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.4.4-10.

We recommend that you upgrade your typespeed packages.
