Description Markus Rothe (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-02-09 09:41:14 UTC
Nexuiz >=2.2.1 fixes a security issue resulting is a DOS. 2.2.3 is already in the tree, but not stable.

from :

- Technical Description

Multiple vulnerabilities have been identified in Nexuiz, which could be exploited by attackers to execute arbitrary commands or cause a denial of service.

The first issue is due to an input validation error within "clientcommands", which could be exploited by remote attackers to inject arbitrary commands.

The second issue is due to an error when processing player connections, which could be exploited by attackers to crash a vulnerable application or exhaust all available memory resources, creating a denial of service condition.

- Affected Products

Nexuiz versions prior to 2.2.1
Comment 1 Mr. Bones. (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-02-09 17:40:39 UTC
I removed 2.1
Comment 2 Markus Rothe (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-02-09 17:48:20 UTC
wasn't 2.1 the latest stable version for x86 and amd64?
Comment 3 Markus Rothe (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-02-09 17:51:11 UTC
whoops, you marked 2.2.3 stable, too. cool. thanks.

@security: what's next? glsa, no glsa?
Comment 4 Mr. Bones. (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-02-09 17:55:11 UTC
I think since 2.1 was stable a glsa would be good.
Comment 5 Raphael Marichez (Falco) (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-02-10 22:20:56 UTC
Yes, good, you should join the security team :)
