    Hiya



    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:

    So you should be safe with that version :)
