                Mandrake Linux Security Update Advisory

 Package name:           irssi
 Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2003:117
 Date:                   December 18th, 2003

 Affected versions:	 9.1, 9.2

 Problem Description:

 A vulnerability in versions of irssi prior to 0.8.9 would allow a
 remote user to crash another user's irssi client provided that the
 client was on a non-x86 architecture or if the "gui print text"
 signal is being used by some script or plugin.
 The updated packages provide 0.8.9 which corrects the problem.
