CVE-2009-0366 wesnoth: non-public security issue
Last modified: 2016-03-01 04:26:24 EST
Wesnoth developers mailing list mentions security fix currently being worked on upstream:
Further details and upstream bug report are currently non-public:
There's currently not much info about this at the moment, though I filed this bug to make maintainers aware of the other upcoming security fix besides CVE-2009-0367, so they can be done in one update if desired.
Debian Security Advisory DSA-1737-1 has just been released referring to this CVE:
describing the flaw as:
Daniel Franke discovered that the wesnoth server is prone to a denial of
service attack when receiving special crafted compressed data.
The patch they used is upstream SVN r33069
Upstream bug report is still private, and I do not see any other public reference that would match r33069 to bug gna#13037 or CVE-2009-0366.
