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.
