Description David Eisenstein 2007-02-05 21:06:17 UTC
According to,
Nexuiz 2.2.3 fixes a remote file read/write security hole:  "fix severe remote
file read/overwrite security hole in 'gamedir' command (2.2.1 was NOT affected
as the command was new in 2.2.2)."  It is CVE-2007-0657.

Although it claims 2.2.1 (the current Fedora Extras release) is not affected, we
may want to upgrade anyway?

Comment 1 Ville Skyttä 2007-02-05 21:47:26 UTC
We discussed this a few days ago in PM with Adrian, and he said he'd take a look
at bumping to 2.2.3 sometime, 2.2.2 will not be shipped.

Given the above plan and non-affectedness of 2.2.1, this CVE is already marked
as "ignore" in the CVS audit files -> removing security keyword and list from Cc.

Comment 2 Hans de Goede 2007-03-01 08:25:10 UTC
Notice that there are also these 2 CVE's against nexuiz:

  [ 1 ] CVE-2006-6609
  [ 2 ] CVE-2006-6610

Both of which (according to the gentoo advisory) are fixed in 2.2.2, thus we
should upgrade to either 2.2.2 or 2.2.3 ASAP.

Comment 3 Adrian Reber 2007-03-01 10:39:44 UTC
Both CVE's (6609 and 6610) are fixed with 2.2.1.

Comment 4 Adrian Reber 2007-03-04 15:57:47 UTC
released 2.2.3 for FC-5, FC-6 and devel
