Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDKSA-2006:135
http://www.mandriva.com/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : freeciv
Date : July 31, 2006
Affected: 2006.0
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

Buffer overflow in Freeciv 2.1.0-beta1 and earlier, and SVN 15 Jul
2006 and earlier, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service
(crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a (1) negative
chunk_length or a (2) large chunk-gt;offset value in a
PACKET_PLAYER_ATTRIBUTE_CHUNK packet in the
generic_handle_player_attribute_chunk function in common/packets.c, and
(3) a large packet-gt;length value in the handle_unit_orders function in
server/unithand.c.

The updated packages have been patched to fix this issue.
