Description Vincent Danen 2012-08-07 11:05:04 EDT
A flaw was found in the way Red Eclipse handled config files.  In cube2-engine games, game maps can be transmitted either from the server to a client, or from client to client.  These maps include a config file (mapname.cfg) in "cubescript" format, which allows for an attacker to send a malicious script via a new map.  This map must either be chosen by an administrator on the server, or created in co-operative editing mode.  A malicious script could then be used to read or write to any files that the user running the client has access to when the victim loads a map with the malicious configuration file.

This has been corrected upstream:
