Description

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200603-10 (Cube: Multiple vulnerabilities)

Luigi Auriemma reported that Cube is vulnerable to a buffer     overflow in the sgetstr() function (CVE-2006-1100) and that the     sgetstr() and getint() functions fail to verify the length of the     supplied argument, possibly leading to the access of invalid memory     regions (CVE-2006-1101). Furthermore, he discovered that a client     crashes when asked to load specially crafted mapnames (CVE-2006-1102).

Impact :

A remote attacker could exploit the buffer overflow to execute     arbitrary code with the rights of the user running cube. An attacker     could also exploit the other vulnerabilities to crash a Cube client or     server, resulting in a Denial of Service.

Workaround :

Play solo games or restrict your multiplayer games to trusted     parties.
