Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: Freeciv: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code (GLSA 201402-07)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: February 06, 2014
Bug(s): #329949
ID: 201402-07

Synopsis

A vulnerability in Freeciv may allow a remote attacker to execute
arbitrary code.


Background

Freeciv is an open-source empire building strategy game.

Affected Packages

Package: games-strategy/freeciv
Vulnerable: < 2.2.1
Unaffected: >= 2.2.1
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

The Lua component of Freeciv does not restrict which modules may be
loaded by scenario scripts.


Impact

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.


Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All Freeciv users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
      # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=games-strategy/freeciv-2.2.1"
   
NOTE: This is a legacy GLSA. Updates for all affected architectures are
available since July 26, 2010. It is likely that your system is already
no longer affected by this issue.
