Debian Security Advisory DSA 1142-1 security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/ Martin Schulze
August 4th, 2006 http://www.debian.org/security/faq
- --------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : freeciv
Vulnerability : missing bouncary checks
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CVE-2006-3913
BugTraq ID : 19117
Debian Bug : 381378

Luigi Auriemma discovered missing boundary checks in freeciv, a clone
of the well known Civilisation game, which can be exploited by remote
attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly execute
arbitrary code.

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 2.0.1-1sarge2.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you upgrade your freeciv package.
