<p>Freeciv is an open-source empire building strategy game.</p>
<p>The Lua component of Freeciv does not restrict which modules may be
loaded by scenario scripts.
<impact type="normal">
<p>A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted
scenario file, possibly resulting in execution of arbitrary code or
reading of arbitrary files with the privileges of the process.
<p>There is no known workaround at this time.</p>
<p>All Freeciv users should upgrade to the latest version:</p>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose "&gt;=games-strategy/freeciv-2.2.1"
<p>NOTE: This is a legacy GLSA. Updates for all affected architectures are
available since July 26, 2010. It is likely that your system is already
no longer affected by this issue.
