Painkiller is a FPS game for Microsoft Windows operating systems. Painkiller versions 1.35 and prior are vulnerable to a buffer overflow. The standard cd key is 72 characters. By sending a long cd key (more than 100 bytes) to the Painkiller server, a remote attacker could overflow a buffer. This could be exploited to possibly allow execution of arbitrary code on the system or a denial of service.

Platforms Affected:

Microsoft Corporation: Windows XP Any version
People can Fly: Painkiller 1.35

I don't think so, as the remedy is quoted as saying:

to upgrade to the latest version of Painkiller (1.61 or later), available from the Painkiller game Web site.
So you should be safe with that version :)
