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.
