Vulnerability  : buffer overflows
Problem-Type   : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id         : CAN-2004-0149
Debian bug     : 174924

Steve Kemp discovered a number of buffer overflow vulnerabilities in
xboing, a game, which could be exploited by a local attacker to gain
gid "games".

For the current stable distribution (woody) these problems have been
fixed in version 2.4-26woody1.

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
version 2.4-26.1.

We recommend that you update your xboing package.
