Description Tomas Hoger 2009-02-27 15:14:33 UTC
Wesnoth developers mailing list mentions security fix currently being worked on upstream:

Further details and upstream bug report are currently non-public:

Comment 1 Tomas Hoger 2009-02-27 15:16:16 UTC
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.

Comment 2 Tomas Hoger 2009-03-11 15:59:49 UTC
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.
