|Gentoo Linux Security Advisory
Title: Irrlicht: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code (GLSA 200903-10)
Date: March 07, 2009
A buffer overflow might lead to the execution of arbitrary code or a Denial of Service.
The Irrlicht Engine is an open source cross-platform high performance realtime 3D engine written in C++.
Vulnerable: < 1.5
Unaffected: >= 1.5
Architectures: All supported architectures
An unspecified component of the B3D loader is vulnerable to a buffer overflow due to missing boundary checks.
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted .irr file, possibly resulting in the execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the application, or a Denial of Service (crash).
There is no known workaround at this time.
All irrlicht users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-games/irrlicht-1.5"
