Debian Security Advisory DSA 997-1 security@debian.org

Package : bomberclone
Vulnerability : buffer overflows
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CVE-2006-0460
BugTraq ID : 16697

Stefan Cornelius of Gentoo Security discovered that bomberclone, a
free Bomberman-like game, crashes when receiving overly long error
packets, which may also allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary
code.

The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain bomberclone packages.

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 0.11.5-1sarge1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 0.11.6.2-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your bomberclone package.
