DSA 166-1-purity

by Nikola Strahija on September 14th, 2002 Two buffer overflows have been discovered in purity, a game for nerds and hackers, which is installed setgid games on a Debian system. This problem could be exploited to gain unauthorized access to the group games. A malicious user could alter the highscore of several games.


This problem has been fixed in version 1-14.2 for the current stable
distribution (woody), in version 1-9.1 for the old stable distribution
(potato) and in version 1-16 for the unstable distribution (sid).

We recommend that you upgrade your purity packages.

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

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
