[GLSA-200602-09] BomberClone: Remote execution of arbitrary code Vulnerability Scan
Vulnerability Scan Summary
BomberClone: Remote execution of arbitrary code
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200602-09
(BomberClone: Remote execution of arbitrary code)
Stefan Cornelius of the Gentoo Security team discovered multiple
missing buffer checks in BomberClone's code.
By sending overly long error messages to the game via network, a
remote attacker may exploit buffer overflows to execute arbitrary code
with the rights of the user running BomberClone.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All BomberClone users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=games-action/bomberclone-0.11.6.2-r1"
Threat Level: High
