    CVE ID         : CVE-2017-11721
    
    A read buffer overflow was discovered in the idtech3 (Quake III Arena)
    family of game engines. This allows remote attackers to cause a denial
    of service (application crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact
    via a crafted packet.
    
    For the stable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.50a+dfsg1-3+deb9u1.
