Description Lubomir Kundrak 2007-10-09 13:05:02 UTC
Description of problem:

From Novell bugzilla (see URL):

A malicious user could send a long chat message with multibyte characters, the
server would truncate the message on a fixed length, without paying attention to
the multibyte characters. This led to invalid utf-8 on the client and an
uncaught exception was thrown. Note both wesnoth and the wesnoth server are
affected.

Additional information:

I am aware of no further details, nor the fix.
