Debian There are multiple vulnerabilities in ircii.

- --------------------------------------------------------------------------
Debian Security Advisory DSA 291-1                                        Martin Schulze
April 22nd, 2003

Package        : ircii
Vulnerability  : buffer overflows
Problem-Type   : remote
Debian-specific: no

Timo Sirainen discovered several problems in ircII, a popular
client for Internet Relay Chat (IRC).  A malicious server could
craft special reply strings, triggering the client to write beyond
buffer boundaries.  This could lead to a denial of service if the
client only crashes, but may also lead to executing of arbitrary code
under the user id of the chatting user.

For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
version 20020322-1.1.

For the old stable distribution (potato) these problems have been
fixed in version 4.4M-1.1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 20030315-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your ircII package.

Upgrade Instructions
- --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
