Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 772791
OpenTTD slow read attack
Last modified: 2015-07-31 02:47:20 EDT
we, the OpenTTD developers, have identified a security vulnerability in
OpenTTD (an open source game with multiplayer). Would you be so kind as to allocate a CVE id for this issue?
The issue concerns a denial of service vulnerability in the form of a slow read attack preventing anyone to join the server, and preventing the continuation of a game when 'pause on join' is enabled. This attack requires the attacker to be authorized, but most servers do not implement authorization. The first vulnerable version is 0.3.5, the upcoming 1.1.5 release will have the issue fixed.
Once a CVE id is allocated, the issue and fix will be documented at
Thanks in advance,
