Subject: Flightgear remote format string



FlightGear is an open-source flight simulator.  It supports a variety of
popular platforms (Windows, Mac, Linux, etc.) and is developed by skilled
volunteers from around the world.  Source code for the entire project is
available and licensed under the GNU General Public License.


Flightgear allows remote control through Property tree.  It is vulnerable
to remote format string vulnerability when some special parameters related
with clouds are changed.  This could allow to crash the application or
potentially execute arbitrary code under certain conditions.


No fix.
