Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA306] DSA-306-1 ircii-pana

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-306-1 ircii-pana

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Timo Sirainen discovered several problems in BitchX, a popular client
for Internet Relay Chat (IRC). A malicious server could craft special
reply strings, triggering the client to write beyond buffer boundaries
or allocate a negative amount of memory. 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 1.0-0c19-1.1.
For the old stable distribution (potato) these problems have been
fixed in version 1.0-0c16-2.1.
For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 1.0-0c19-8.
We recommend that you upgrade your BitchX package.
