Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

typespeed is a game which challenges the player to type words
correctly and quickly. It contains a network play mode which allows
players on different systems to play competitively. The network code
contains a buffer overflow which could allow a remote attacker to
execute arbitrary code under the rights of the user invoking
typespeed, in addition to gid games.
For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
