Package        : py2play
Vulnerability  : design error
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CAN-2005-2875
Debian Bug     : 326976

Arc Riley discovered that py2play, a peer-to-peer network game engine,
is able to execute arbitrary code received from the p2p game network
it is connected to without any security checks.

The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain py2play packages.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.1.7-1sarge1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.1.8-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your py2play package.


Upgrade Instructions
- --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
