allowing remote attackers to cause Denial of Service and possibly execute
arbitrary code.


Background

FlightGear is an open-source flight simulator. It supports a variety of
popular platforms (Windows, Mac, Linux, etc.) and is developed by skilled
volunteers from around the world. Source code for the entire project is
available and licensed under the GNU General Public License.

Architectures: All supported architectures

Package: games-simulation/simgear
Vulnerable: < 3.4.0
Unaffected: >= 3.4.0
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

Multiple format string vulnerabilities in FlightGear and SimGear allow
user-assisted remote attackers to cause a denial of service and possibly
execute arbitrary code via format string specifiers in certain data chunk
values in an aircraft xml model.


Impact

Remote attackers could possibly execute arbitrary code or cause Denial
of Service.


Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All Flightgear users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
      # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose
      ">=games-simulation/flightgear-3.4.0"
