Unreal Vulnerability

The SecurityFocus BugTraq Mailing List (thanks Wunderwaffe) has word on a problem that impacts any game using the Unreal engine. Here's the deal:

This bug was signaled to EpicGames EXACTLY the 2th September 2003 (today is the 10th March so over 6 months ago) but at the beginning it was underrated and was taken a bit more seriously only at November.

All the developers of the vulnerable games have been alerted by EpicGames through their internal mailing-list.

About UT and UT2003: EpicGames refused to release a quick-fix for UnrealTournament and UnrealTournament 2003 so the fix was inserted in the planned patch as they do for graphic bugs and other small problems... the patch has not been released yet and is impossible to know when it will be ready.

QUICK FIXES ARE THE SOLUTION: SECURITY BUGS ARE *NOT* COMMON BUGS!!!
