Debian: New typespeed packages fix buffer overflow

typespeed is a game which challenges the player to type words correctly and quickly. It contains a network play mode which allows players on different systems to play competitively. The network code contains a buffer overflow which could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code under the privileges of the user invoking typespeed, in addition to gid games. Fixed packages are available from security.debian.org.
