Debian Security Advisory DSA 1163-1 security@debian.org

- --------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : gtetrinet
Vulnerability : programming error
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CVE-2006-3125

Michael Gehring discovered several potential out-of-bounds index
accesses in gtetrinet, a multiplayer Tetris-like game, which may allow
a remove server to execute arbitrary code.

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 0.7.8-1sarge2.

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

We recommend that you upgrade your gtetrinet package.
