Description Martin Prpič 2015-04-13 07:51:37 EDT
A flaw was reported in wesnoth, a turn-based strategy game with a fantasy theme:

A severe security vulnerability in the game client was found (bug #23440) which could allow a malicious user to obtain personal files and information from other players in networked MP games using the built-in WML/Lua API on any platform.

The flaw affects wesnoth 1.12.1 and wesnoth 1.10.7.
