Title: Scorched 3D: Multiple vulnerabilities (GLSA 200511-12)
Date: November 15, 2005
Updated: August 10, 2006
Multiple vulnerabilities in Scorched 3D allow a remote attacker to deny service or execute arbitrary code on game servers.
Scorched 3D is a clone of the classic "Scorched Earth" DOS game, adding features like a 3D island environment and Internet multiplayer capabilities.
Vulnerable: <= 39.1
Unaffected: >= 40
Architectures: All supported architectures
Luigi Auriemma discovered multiple flaws in the Scorched 3D game server, including a format string vulnerability and several buffer overflows.
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.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Scorched 3D users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=games-strategy/scorched3d-40"
