BomberClone is vulnerable to a buffer overflow which may lead to remote execution of arbitrary code.
|Package||games-action/bomberclone on all architectures|
|Affected versions||< 0.11.6.2-r1|
|Unaffected versions||>= 0.11.6.2-r1|
BomberClone is a remake of the classic game "BomberMan". It supports multiple players via IP network connection.
Stefan Cornelius of the Gentoo Security team discovered multiple missing buffer checks in BomberClone's code.
By sending overly long error messages to the game via network, a remote attacker may exploit buffer overflows to execute arbitrary code with the rights of the user running BomberClone.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All BomberClone users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=games-action/bomberclone-0.11.6.2-r1"
