Hi folks,

we, the OpenTTD developers, have identified a security vulnerability in
OpenTTD (an open source game with multiplayer). Would you be so kind
as to allocate a CVE id for this issue?

The issue concerns a denial of service vulnerability in the form of a
slow read attack preventing anyone to join the server, and preventing
the continuation of a game when 'pause on join' is enabled. This
attack requires the attacker to be authorized, but most servers do not
implement authorization. The first vulnerable version is 0.3.5, the
upcoming 1.1.5 release will have the issue fixed.

Once a CVE id is allocated, the issue and fix will be documented at

Thanks in advance,
