Christey" <coley@...us.mitre.org> CC: oss-security@...ts.openwall.com Subject: CVE-2010 Request: quake3 / openarena-server: DDoS by processing 'getstatus' and 'rcon' packets Hello Kurt, Steve, vendors, yet in 2010 the following problem has been corrected in Quake3 / OpenArena: A distributed denial of service flaw was found in the way Quake3 Arena / OpenArena servers used to handle 'getstatus' and 'rcon' (remote command) connectionless requests. A remote attacker could use this flaw to perform distributed denial of service attack against the target server IP gameserver by spoofing certain packets.
