    Nicolas Boullis discovered two vulnerabilities in mah-jong, a
    network-enabled game.
    
     - CAN-2003-0705 (buffer overflow)
    
       This vulnerability could be exploited by a remote attacker to
       execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the
       mah-jong server.
    
    - - CAN-2003-0706 (denial of service)
    
      This vulnerability could be exploited by a remote attacker to cause
      the mah-jong server to enter a tight loop and stop responding to
      commands.
    
    For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.4-2.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.5.6-2.
    
    We recommend that you update your mah-jong package.
