Updated squirrel/supertux packages fix security vulnerabilityPublication date: 24 Apr 2023
Affected Mageia releases : 8
sqclass.cpp in Squirrel 3.1 allows an out-of-bounds read (in the core interpreter) that can lead to Code Execution. If a victim executes an attacker-controlled squirrel script, it is possible for the attacker to break out of the squirrel script sandbox even if all dangerous functionality such as File System functions has been disabled. An attacker might abuse this bug to target (for example) Cloud services that allow customization via SquirrelScripts, or distribute malware through video games that embed a Squirrel Engine. (CVE-2021-41556) supertux has been rebuilt as it uses a bundled copy of squirrel.
