Purity Local Buffer Overflow Vulnerabilities

Purity is reported to be prone to a number of buffer overflows, making it possible for local attackers to corrupt memory with attacker-supplied data. As a result, it is possible for an attacker to execute arbitrary code. The game is installed setgid, and successful exploitation of these issues may allow for elevation of privileges. In most installations the group owner is the games user.
