<description>
<p>Multiple format string vulnerabilities in FlightGear and SimGear allow
user-assisted remote attackers to cause a denial of service and possibly
execute arbitrary code via format string specifiers in certain data chunk
values in an aircraft xml model.
</p>
</description>
<impact type="normal">
<p>Remote attackers could possibly execute arbitrary code or cause Denial
of Service.
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>There is no known workaround at this time.</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>
<p>All Flightgear users should upgrade to the latest version:</p>
<code>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose
"&gt;=games-simulation/flightgear-3.4.0"
</code>
<p>All Simgear users should upgrade to the latest version:</p>
<code>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose "&gt;=games-simulation/simgear-3.4.0"
