Synopsis
========

GTetrinet is vulnerable to a remote buffer overflow, potentially
leading to arbitrary code execution.

Background
==========

GTetrinet is a networked Tetris clone for GNOME 2.

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

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

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

Michael Gehring has found that GTetrinet fails to properly handle array
indexes.

Impact
======

An attacker can potentially execute arbitrary code by sending a
negative number of players to the server.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
