Debian DSA-333-1 : acm - integer overflow

critical Nessus Plugin ID 15170


The remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.


acm, a multi-player aerial combat simulation, uses a network protocol based on the same RPC implementation used in many C libraries. This implementation was found to contain an integer overflow vulnerability which could be exploited to execute arbitrary code.


For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in version 5.0-3.woody.1.

We recommend that you update your acm package.
