This script is Copyright (C) 2007-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
patches.

Description :

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200702-09
(Nexuiz: Multiple vulnerabilities)

Nexuiz fails to correctly validate input within 'clientcommands'. There
is also a failure to correctly handle connection attempts from remote
hosts.

Impact :

Using a specially crafted 'clientcommand' a remote attacker can cause a
buffer overflow in Nexuiz which could result in the execution of
arbitrary code. Additionally, there is a Denial of Service
vulnerability in Nexuiz allowing an attacker to cause Nexuiz to crash
or to run out of resources by overloading it with specially crafted
connection requests.

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=games-fps/nexuiz-2.2.1'
