==============1) Introduction
==============

netPanzer is a nice and well known open source multiplayer strategy
game.

=====2) Bug
=====

The game is affected by a denial of service which happens when a client
uses a flag (called also frameNum) major than 41 since the setFrame
function in src/Lib/2D/Surface.hpp checks if this number is minor than
frameCount:

    void setFrame(const float &frameNum)
    {
        assert(frameNum >= 0.0);
        assert(frameNum < frameCount);
        mem = frame0 + (pix.y * stride) * int(frameNum);
    }

The result is the immediate interruption of the server:

netpanzer: src/Lib/2D/Surface.hpp:370: void Surface::setFrame(const
float&): Assertion `frameNum < frameCount' failed. Received signal
SIGABRT(6) aborting and trying to shutdown.
Closing logfile.
Aborted
