    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.
