by Nikola Strahija on April 21st, 2002 An internal audit by the xpilot (a multi-player tactical manoeuvring game for X) maintainers revealed a buffer overflow in xpilot server. This overflow can be abused by remote attackers to gain access to the server under which the xpilot server is running.

This has been fixed in upstream version 4.5.1 and version
4.1.0-4.U.4alpha2.4.potato1 of the Debian package.

wget url
will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb

Debian GNU/Linux 2.2 alias potato
- ---------------------------------

Potato was released for alpha, arm, i386, m68k, powerpc and sparc.
