Description Carsten Lohrke (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-03-14 09:12:57 UTC
Buffer overflow in socket/request.c in CrossFire before 1.9.0, when oldsocketmode is enabled, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (segmentation fault) and possibly execute code by sending the server a large request.

games team, are we affected? if so, please provide fixed packages.

its maybe not only DoS, CVE also talks about possible RCE.
Comment 2 Mr. Bones. (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-04-21 09:12:16 UTC
1.9.0 is the only version in portage so I don't think we're affected.
Comment 3 Carsten Lohrke (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-04-21 09:37:33 UTC
Well, don't know who did it, but as I  reported the bug, 1.7.1 was marked stable and 1.9.0 wasn't even in the tree. Someone removed the older ebuilds and marked 1.9.0 stable without leaving a sentence in the ChangeLog.
