Roland Clobus discovered that the Pioneers server may free sessions
objects while they are still in use, resulting in access to invalid
memory zones (CVE-2007-5933). Bas Wijnen discovered an error when
closing connections which can lead to a failed assertion
(CVE-2007-6010).
</p>
</description>
<impact type="normal">
<p>
A remote attacker could send specially crafted data to the vulnerable
server, resulting in a Denial of Service.
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>
There is no known workaround at this time.
</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>
<p>

</p>
<code>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=games-board/pioneers-0.11.3-r1&quot;</code>
</resolution>
