Description

duskwave discovered that tinymux, a text-based multi-user virtual world server, performs insufficient boundary checks when working with user-supplied data, which might lead to the execution of arbitrary code.

For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in version 2.4.3.31-1etch1.

We recommend that you upgrade your tinymux package.
