GLSA-200608-16 : Warzone 2100 Resurrection: Multiple buffer overflows
High Nessus Plugin ID 22215
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200608-16 (Warzone 2100 Resurrection: Multiple buffer overflows)
Luigi Auriemma discovered two buffer overflow vulnerabilities in Warzone 2100 Resurrection. The recvTextMessage function of the Warzone 2100 Resurrection server and the NETrecvFile function of the client use insufficiently sized buffers.
A remote attacker could exploit these vulnerabilities by sending specially crafted input to the server, or enticing a user to load a specially crafted file from a malicious server. This may result in the execution of arbitrary code with the permissions of the user running Warzone 2100 Resurrection.
There is no known workaround for this issue.
