Overview

net.sf.robocode:robocode is a programming game, where the goal is to develop a robot battle tank to battle against other tanks in Java or .NET. The robot battles are running in real-time and on-screen.

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Privilege Escalation. An attacker could cause external service interaction (DNS), as demonstrated by a query for a unique subdomain name within an attacker-controlled DNS zone, because of a .openStream call within java.net.URL.

Remediation

A fix was pushed into the master branch but not yet published.
