 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2013:136
 http://www.mandriva.com/en/support/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : weechat
 Date    : April 10, 2013
 Affected: Business Server 1.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 Updated weechat packages fix security vulnerability:
 
 A buffer overflow is causing a crash or freeze of WeeChat (0.36 to
 0.39) when decoding IRC colors in strings. The packages have been
 patched to fix this problem (CVE-2012-5854).
 
 Untrusted command for function hook_process in WeeChat before 0.3.9.2
 could lead to execution of commands, because of shell expansions (so
 the problem is only caused by some scripts, not by WeeChat itself)
 (CVE-2012-5534).
