[SECURITY] [DSA-205-1] gtetrinet buffer overflows

by Nikola Strahija on December 10th, 2002 Steve Kemp and James Antill found several buffer overflows in the gtetrinet (a multiplayer tetris-like game) package as shipped in Debian GNU/Linux 3.0, which could be abused by a malicious server. This has been fixed in upstream version 0.4.4 and release 0.4.1-9woody1.1 of the Debian package.

Obtaining updates:

By hand:
wget URL
will fetch the file for you.
dpkg -i FILENAME.deb
will install the fetched file.

With apt:
deb stable/updates main
added to /etc/apt/sources.list will provide security updates
