GLSA-200602-09 : BomberClone: Remote execution of arbitrary code
High Nessus Plugin ID 20935
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200602-09 (BomberClone: Remote execution of arbitrary code)
Stefan Cornelius of the Gentoo Security team discovered multiple missing buffer checks in BomberClone's code.
By sending overly long error messages to the game via network, a remote attacker may exploit buffer overflows to execute arbitrary code with the rights of the user running BomberClone.
There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionAll BomberClone users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=games-action/bomberclone-0.11.6.2-r1'
