|Gentoo Linux Security Advisory
Title: GTetrinet: Remote code execution (GLSA 200609-02)
Date: September 06, 2006
Updated: September 07, 2006
GTetrinet is vulnerable to a remote buffer overflow, potentially leading to arbitrary code execution.
GTetrinet is a networked Tetris clone for GNOME 2.
Vulnerable: < 0.7.10
Unaffected: >= 0.7.10
Architectures: All supported architectures
Michael Gehring has found that GTetrinet fails to properly handle array indexes.
An attacker can potentially execute arbitrary code by sending a negative number of players to the server.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All GTetrinet users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=games-puzzle/gtetrinet-0.7.10"
