Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2006:135: freeciv

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the freeciv package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2006:135 (freeciv).

Buffer overflow in Freeciv 2.1.0-beta1 and earlier, and SVN 15 Jul
2006 and earlier, permits remote attackers to cause a denial of service
(crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a (1) negative
chunk_length or a (2) large chunk->offset value in a
PACKET_PLAYER_ATTRIBUTE_CHUNK packet in the
generic_handle_player_attribute_chunk function in common/packets.c, and
(3) a large packet->length value in the handle_unit_orders function in
server/unithand.c.
The updated packages have been patched to fix this issue.
