Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Luigi Auriemma discovered missing boundary checks in freeciv, a clone
of the well documented Civilisation game, which can be exploited by remote
attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly execute
arbitrary code.
For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 2.0.1-1sarge2.
For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems will be fixed soon.
We recommend that you upgrade your freeciv package.
