[GLSA-200603-10] Cube: Multiple vulnerabilities

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Cube: Multiple vulnerabilities

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200603-10
(Cube: Multiple vulnerabilities)


Luigi Auriemma reported that Cube is vulnerable to a buffer
overflow in the sgetstr() function (CVE-2006-1100) and that the
sgetstr() and getint() functions fail to verify the length of the
supplied argument, possibly leading to the access of invalid memory
regions (CVE-2006-1101). Furthermore, he discovered that a client
crashes when asked to load specially crafted mapnames (CVE-2006-1102).

Impact

A remote attacker could exploit the buffer overflow to execute
arbitrary code with the rights of the user running cube. A possible hacker
could also exploit the other vulnerabilities to crash a Cube client or
server, resulting in a Denial of Service.

Workaround

Play solo games or restrict your multiplayer games to trusted
parties.
