Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: BomberClone: Remote execution of arbitrary code (GLSA 200602-09)
Severity: high
Exploitable: remote
Date: February 16, 2006
Bug(s): #121605
ID: 200602-09

Synopsis

BomberClone is vulnerable to a buffer overflow which may lead to remote execution of arbitrary code.

Background

BomberClone is a remake of the classic game "BomberMan". It supports multiple players via IP network connection.

Affected Packages

Package: games-action/bomberclone
Vulnerable: < 0.11.6.2-r1
Unaffected: >= 0.11.6.2-r1
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

Stefan Cornelius of the Gentoo Security team discovered multiple missing buffer checks in BomberClone's code.

Impact

By sending overly long error messages to the game via network, a remote attacker may exploit buffer overflows to execute arbitrary code with the rights of the user running BomberClone.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All BomberClone users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=games-action/bomberclone-0.11.6.2-r1"


References

CVE-2006-0460
