===============  
1) Introduction  
===============  
  
  
netPanzer is a nice and well known open source multiplayer strategy  
game.

======  
2) Bug  
======  
  
  
The game is affected by a denial of service which happens when a client  
uses a flag (called also frameNum) major than 41 since the setFrame  
function in src/Lib/2D/Surface.hpp checks if this number is minor than  
frameCount:  
  
void setFrame(const float &frameNum)  
{  
assert(frameNum >= 0.0);  
assert(frameNum < frameCount);  
mem = frame0 + (pix.y * stride) * int(frameNum);  
}  
  
The result is the immediate interruption of the server:  
  
netpanzer: src/Lib/2D/Surface.hpp:370: void Surface::setFrame(const  
float&): Assertion `frameNum < frameCount' failed. Received signal  
SIGABRT(6) aborting and trying to shutdown.  
Closing logfile.  
Aborted
