Posted by LinuxSecurity.com Team   
Debian All versions of the EPIC script Light prior to 2.7.30p5 (on the 2.7 branch) and prior to 2.8pre10 (on the 2.8 branch) running on any platform are vulnerable to a remotely-exploitable bug, which can lead to nearly arbitrary code execution.

Package        : epic4-script-light
Vulnerability  : arbitrary script execution
Problem-Type   : remote
Debian-specific: no

All versions of the EPIC script Light prior to 2.7.30p5 (on the 2.7
branch) and prior to 2.8pre10 (on the 2.8 branch) running on any
platform are vulnerable to a remotely-exploitable bug, which can lead
to nearly arbitrary code execution.

This problem has been fixed in version 2.7.30p5-1.1 for the current
stable distribution (woody) and in version 2.7.30p5-2 for the unstable
distribution (sid).  The old stable distribution (potato) is not
affected, since it doesn't contain the Light package.

We recommend that you upgrade your epic4-script-light package and
restart your IRC client.

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.
