+ <description>
+ <p>
+ Niko Tyni discovered a buffer overflow in the addnewword() function of
+ Typespeed's network code.
+ </p>
+ </description>
+ <impact type="high">
+ <p>
+ By sending specially crafted network packets to a machine running
+ Typespeed in multiplayer mode, a remote attacker can execute arbitrary
+ code with the permissions of the user running the game.
+ </p>
+ </impact>
+ <workaround>
+ <p>
+ Do not run Typespeed in multiplayer mode. There is no known workaround
+ at this time for multiplayer mode.
+ </p>
+ </workaround>
+ <resolution>
+ <p>
+ All Typespeed users should upgrade to the latest version:
+ </p>
+ <code>
+ # emerge --sync
+ # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=games-misc/typespeed-0.5.0&quot;</code>
