Fedora 13 : alienarena-7.33-2.fc13 (2010-6179)

Description

Fixes the following security issues: - By supplying various invalid parameters to the download command, it is possible to cause a DoS condition by causing the server to crash. A path ending in . or / will crash on Linux. Supplying a negative offset will cause a crash on all platforms. - Fix buffer overflow identified in R1Q2 client code.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
