Updated flightgear package fixes security vulnerability

Publication date: 06 Jun 2013
Type: security
Affected Mageia releases : 2 , 3

Description

It was reported that FlightGear suffers from improper handling of format
strings when FlightGear is started with allowances for remote access (via
the --props or --telnet commandline arguments).  If a remote attacker were
able to connect to FlightGear and set special parameters related with clouds,
it could cause FlightGear to crash.
