[GLSA-200608-16] Warzone 2100 Resurrection: Multiple buffer overflows

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Warzone 2100 Resurrection: Multiple buffer overflows

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200608-16
(Warzone 2100 Resurrection: Multiple buffer overflows)


Luigi Auriemma discovered two buffer overflow vulnerabilities in
Warzone 2100 Resurrection. The recvTextMessage function of the Warzone
2100 Resurrection server and the NETrecvFile function of the client use
insufficiently sized buffers.

Impact

A remote attacker could exploit these vulnerabilities by sending
specially crafted input to the server, or enticing a user to load a
specially crafted file from a malicious server. This may result in the
execution of arbitrary code with the permissions of the user running
Warzone 2100 Resurrection.

Workaround

There is no known workaround for this issue.
