=====2) Bug
=====
-------------------------------------
A] buffer-overflow in recvTextMessage
-------------------------------------

recvTextMessage is the function used by the server for handling the
text messages sent by the clients.
This function uses the msg buffer, which has a size of 256
(MAX_CONSOLE_STRING_LENGTH) bytes, for containing the entire message to
send to all the other clients using the following format:

  player_name : message

The size of the data block can be max 8000 (MaxMsgSize) bytes so an
attacker can cause a buffer-overflow for crashing the server or
executing malicious code.

>From src/multiplay.c:

BOOL recvTextMessage(NETMSG *pMsg)
{
    DPID    dpid;
    UDWORD  i;
    STRING  msg[MAX_CONSOLE_STRING_LENGTH];

    NetGet(pMsg,0,dpid);
    for(i = 0; NetPlay.players[i].dpid != dpid; i++);
//findplayer

    strcpy(msg,NetPlay.players[i].name);
// name
    strcat(msg," : ");
// seperator
    strcat(msg, &(pMsg->body[4]));
    ...


---------------------------------
B] buffer-overflow in NETrecvFile
---------------------------------

The NETrecvFile function used by the clients for downloading remote
files is affected by a buffer-overflow caused by the copying of a
string of max 255 bytes in the fileName buffer of only 128 bytes.

>From lib/netplay/netplay.c:

UBYTE NETrecvFile(NETMSG *pMsg)
{
    UDWORD          pos, fileSize, currPos, bytesRead;
    char            fileName[128];
    unsigned int        len;
    static PHYSFS_file  *pFileHandle;

    //read incoming bytes.
    NetGet(pMsg,0,fileSize);
    NetGet(pMsg,4,bytesRead);
    NetGet(pMsg,8,currPos);

    // read filename
    len = (unsigned int)(pMsg->body[12]);
    memcpy(fileName,&(pMsg->body[13]),len);
    ...

==========3) The Code
==========

A]
modify sendTextMessage using a message of more than 256 bytes

B]
modify sendMap using a map of more than 128 bytes
