Tremulous is a team-based First Person Shooter game.
It has been reported that Tremulous includes a vulnerable version of the ioQuake3 engine (GLSA 200605-12, CVE-2006-2236).
A remote attacker could entice a user to connect to a malicious games server, possibly resulting in the execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the application.
There is no known workaround at this time.
Tremulous users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=games-fps/tremulous-1.1.0-r2"
Note: The binary version of Tremulous has been removed from the Portage tree.
