Debian Security Advisory DSA-205-1                                  Wichert Akkerman
December 10, 2002

Package        : gtetrinet
Problem type   : buffer overflow
Debian-specific: no

Steve Kemp and James Antill found several buffer overflows in the
gtetrinet (a multiplayer tetris-like game) package as shipped in
Debian GNU/Linux 3.0, which could be abused by a malicious server.

This has been fixed in upstream version 0.4.4 and release
0.4.1-9woody1.1 of the Debian package.


Obtaining updates:

  By hand:
    wget URL
        will fetch the file for you.
    dpkg -i FILENAME.deb
        will install the fetched file.

  With apt:
    deb stable/updates main
        added to /etc/apt/sources.list will provide security updates
