Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
Ulf Härnhammar from the Debian Security Audit Project
discovered a vulnerability in
lbreakout2, a game, where proper bounds checking was not performed on
environment variables. This bug could be exploited by a local
attacker to gain the rights of group "games".
For the current stable distribution (woody) this problem has been
fixed in version 2.2.2-1woody1.
For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem will be fixed soon.
We recommend that you update your lbreakout2 package.
