Package : xpilot
Problem type : remote buffer overflow
Debian-specific: no

An internal audit by the xpilot (a multi-player tactical manoeuvring
game for X) maintainers revealed a buffer overflow in xpilot server.
This overflow can be abused by remote attackers to gain access to
the server under which the xpilot server is running.

This has been fixed in upstream version 4.5.1 and version
4.1.0-4.U.4alpha2.4.potato1 of the Debian package.

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

Debian GNU/Linux 2.2 alias potato
- ---------------------------------

  Potato was released for alpha, arm, i386, m68k, powerpc and sparc.
  At this moment arm packages are not available yet.
