Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: Scorched 3D: Multiple vulnerabilities (GLSA 200511-12)
Severity: high
Exploitable: remote
Date: November 15, 2005
Updated: August 10, 2006
Bug(s): #111421
ID: 200511-12

Synopsis

Multiple vulnerabilities in Scorched 3D allow a remote attacker to deny service or execute arbitrary code on game servers.

Background

Scorched 3D is a clone of the classic "Scorched Earth" DOS game, adding features like a 3D island environment and Internet multiplayer capabilities.

Affected Packages

Package: games-strategy/scorched3d
Vulnerable: <= 39.1
Unaffected: >= 40
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

Luigi Auriemma discovered multiple flaws in the Scorched 3D game server, including a format string vulnerability and several buffer overflows.

Impact

A remote attacker can exploit these vulnerabilities to crash a game server or execute arbitrary code with the rights of the game server user. Users not running a Scorched 3D game server are not affected by these flaws.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All Scorched 3D users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=games-strategy/scorched3d-40"
