Description Sean Amoss 2012-07-27 21:58:09 UTC
Upstream requested a CVE identifier on oss-sec ML at $URL: "we, the OpenTTD developers, have identified a security vulnerability in OpenTTD (an open source game with multiplayer). Would you be so kind as to allocate a CVE id for this issue? The issue concerns a denial of service vulnerabilty which enables an attacker to force the server into an invalid game state. The server will abort upon detecting this state. This attack can be performed using an unmodified client via normal game interaction. The attack requires authorization, but most servers do not implement authorization. The first vulnerable version is 0.6.0, the upcoming 1.2.2 release will have the issue fixed."

CVE-2012-3436 (http://nvd.nist.gov/nvd.cfm?cvename=CVE-2012-3436): OpenTTD 0.6.0 through 1.2.1 does not properly validate requests to clear a water tile, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and server crash) via a certain sequence of steps related to "the water/coast aspect of tiles which also have railtracks on one half."
