Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA929] DSA-929-1 petris

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-929-1 petris

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Steve Kemp from the Debian Security Audit project discovered a buffer
overflow in petris, a clone of the Tetris game, which may be exploited
to execute arbitrary code with group games rights.
The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain the petris package.
For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.0.1-4sarge0.
For the unstable distribution the package will be updated shortly.
We recommend that you upgrade your petris package.
