execution of arbitrary code.

Background
==========

LTris is a Tetris clone.

Affected packages
=================

    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     Package             /  Vulnerable  /                   Unaffected

Description
===========

highscores file.

Impact

another user to execute arbitrary code.

Workaround
