Package : iortcw CVE ID : CVE-2017-11721

A read buffer overflow was discovered in the idtech3 (Quake III Arena) family of game engines. This allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted packet.

For the stable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed in version 1.50a+dfsg1-3+deb9u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your iortcw packages.
