missing buffer checks in BomberClone's code.

<impact type="high">
<p>
By sending overly long error messages to the game via network, a
remote attacker may exploit buffer overflows to execute arbitrary code
with the rights of the user running BomberClone.
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>
There is no known workaround at this time.
</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>
<p>
All BomberClone users should upgrade to the latest version:

<code>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=games-action/bomberclone-0.11.6.2-r1&quot;</code>
