Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA691] DSA-691-1 abuse

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-691-1 abuse

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in abuse, the SDL port of
the Abuse action game. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures
project identifies the following problems:
Erik Sjölund discovered several buffer overflows in the command line
handling, which could lead to the execution of arbitrary code with
elevated rights since it is installed setuid root.
Steve Kemp discovered that abuse creates some files without
dropping rights first, which may lead to the creation and
overwriting of arbitrary files.
For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
version 2.00+-3woody4.
The unstable distribution (sid) does not contain an abuse package anymore.
We recommend that you upgrade your abuse package.
