Date: February 06, 2014
A vulnerability in Freeciv may allow a remote attacker to execute
Freeciv is an open-source empire building strategy game.
Vulnerable: < 2.2.1
Unaffected: >= 2.2.1
Architectures: All supported architectures
The Lua component of Freeciv does not restrict which modules may be
loaded by scenario scripts.
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted
scenario file, possibly resulting in execution of arbitrary code or
reading of arbitrary files with the privileges of the process.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Freeciv users should upgrade to the latest version:
NOTE: This is a legacy GLSA. Updates for all affected architectures are
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=games-strategy/freeciv-2.2.1"
available since July 26, 2010. It is likely that your system is already
no longer affected by this issue.
