GLSA-200702-10 : UFO2000: Multiple vulnerabilities

This script is Copyright (C) 2007-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

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

Description :

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200702-10
(UFO2000: Multiple vulnerabilities)

Five vulnerabilities were found: a buffer overflow in recv_add_unit()

a problem with improperly trusting user-supplied string information in
several issues with array manipulation via various
commands during play
a SQL injection in server_protocol.cpp
finally, a second buffer overflow in recv_map_data().

Impact :

An attacker could send crafted network traffic as part of a
multi-player game that could result in remote code execution on the
remote opponent or the server. A remote attacker could also run
arbitrary SQL queries against the server account database, and perform
a Denial of Service on a remote opponent by causing the game to crash.

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.

Solution :

UFO2000 currently depends on the dumb-0.9.2 library, which has been
removed from portage due to security problems (GLSA 200608-14) .
Because of this, UFO2000 has been masked, and we recommend unmerging
the package until the next beta release can remove the dependency on
# emerge --ask --verbose --unmerge ufo2000

Risk factor :

High / CVSS Base Score : 7.5
