Luigi Auriemma has reported two vulnerabilities in Race Driver, which can be exploited by malicious people to cause a DoS (Denial of Service) or potentially compromise a vulnerable system.
A format string error and a boundary error in the game's IRC public chat interface and the game's Server Browser can be exploited by sending specially crafted input to the public chat IRC server or by hosting a game with format specifiers in its name.
The vulnerabilities have been reported in versions 1.20 and prior.
Solution: Play multiplayer games on trusted networks only.
