|Gentoo Linux Security Advisory
Title: OpenTTD: Remote Denial of Service (GLSA 200609-03)
Date: September 06, 2006
The OpenTTD server is vulnerable to a remote Denial of Service.
OpenTTD is a clone of Transport Tycoon Deluxe.
Vulnerable: < 0.4.8
Unaffected: >= 0.4.8
Architectures: All supported architectures
OpenTTD is vulnerable to a Denial of Service attack due to a flaw in the manner the game server handles errors in command packets.
An authenticated attacker can cause a Denial of Service by sending an invalid error number to a vulnerable OpenTTD server.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All OpenTTD users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=games-simulation/openttd-0.4.8"
