GLSA-200702-10 : UFO2000: Multiple vulnerabilities

High Nessus Plugin ID 24722


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


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 decode_stringmap(); several issues with array manipulation via various commands during play; a SQL injection in server_protocol.cpp; and 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.


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 dumb.
# emerge --ask --verbose --unmerge ufo2000
