Quake 1 engine.

<description>
<p>
Nexuiz fails to correctly validate input within "clientcommands". There
is also a failure to correctly handle connection attempts from remote
hosts.
</p>
</description>
<impact type="normal">
<p>
Using a specially crafted "clientcommand" a remote attacker can cause a
buffer overflow in Nexuiz which could result in the execution of
arbitrary code. Additionally, there is a Denial of Service
vulnerability in Nexuiz allowing an attacker to cause Nexuiz to crash
or to run out of resources by overloading it with specially crafted
connection requests.
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>
There is no known workaround at this time.
</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>
<p>
All Nexuiz users should upgrade to the latest version:
</p>
<code>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=games-fps/nexuiz-2.2.1&quot;</code>
</resolution>
