Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: UFO2000: Multiple vulnerabilities (GLSA 200702-10)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: February 25, 2007
Bug(s): #142392
ID: 200702-10


Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in the network components of
UFO2000 that could result in the remote execution of arbitrary code.


UFO2000 is a multi-player, turn-based tactical simulation.

Affected Packages

Package: games-strategy/ufo2000
Vulnerable: < 0.7.1062
Unaffected: >= 0.7.1062
Architectures: All supported architectures


Five vulnerabilities were found: a buffer overflow in recv_add_unit();
a problem with improperly trusting user-supplied string information in
decode_stringmap(); several issues with array manipulation via various
commands during play; an SQL injection in server_protocol.cpp; and
finally, a second buffer overflow in recv_map_data().


An attacker could send crafted network traffic as part of a
multi-player game that could result in remote code execution on the
remote opponent or the server. A remote attacker could also run
arbitrary SQL queries against the server account database, and perform
a Denial of Service on a remote opponent by causing the game to crash.


There is no known workaround at this time.


UFO2000 currently depends on the dumb-0.9.2 library, which has been
removed from portage due to security problems (GLSA 200608-14) .
Because of this, UFO2000 has been masked, and we recommend unmerging
the package until the next beta release can remove the dependency on
# emerge --ask --verbose --unmerge ufo2000
