2) Bug
======


The network plugin is affected by a buffer-overflow in the function
READ_TCP_STRING() located in game_message_functions.cpp and used to
read the text strings received from the network.
First it reads the 32 bit number that specifies the size of the text
string and then copies it into a local buffer of only 100 bytes
allowing an attacker to execute malicious code.
