Description


A vulnerability has been reported in the Icculus.org Quake 3 Engine, which can be exploited by malicious people to cause a DoS (Denial of Service) and potentially compromise a user's system.

A boundary error exists in the handling of CS_ITEMS sent from a server. This can be exploited to cause a stack-based buffer overflow by sending overly long values to the client.

Successful exploitation may allow arbitrary code execution, but requires that the user is e.g. tricked into connecting to a malicious server.

The vulnerability has been reported in revision 812. Prior versions may be also affected.


Solution:
The vulnerability has been fixed in revision 813 in the SVN repository.
