Vulnerability : buffer overflow
Problem type : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s) : CVE-2007-1655
BugTraq ID : 23292
Debian Bug : 417539

duskwave discovered that tinymux, a text-based multi-user virtual world server,
performs insufficient boundary checks when working with user-supplied data,
which might lead to the execution of arbitary code.

For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in version
2.4.3.31-1etch1.

We recommend that you upgrade your tinymux package.
