Debian Security Advisory DSA 378-1 security@debian.org http://www.debian.org/security/ Matt Zimmerman September 7th, 2003 http://www.debian.org/security/faq


Package : mah-jong Vulnerability : buffer overflows, denial of service Problem-Type : remote Debian-specific: no CVE Ids : CAN-2003-0705 CAN-2003-0706

Nicolas Boullis discovered two vulnerabilities in mah-jong, a network-enabled game.

  • CAN-2003-0705 (buffer overflow)

This vulnerability could be exploited by a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the mah-jong server.

    • CAN-2003-0706 (denial of service)

This vulnerability could be exploited by a remote attacker to cause the mah-jong server to enter a tight loop and stop responding to commands.

For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in version 1.4-2.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in version 1.5.6-2.

We recommend that you update your mah-jong package.
