Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2002:051: xchat

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the xchat package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2002:051 (xchat).


In versions of the xchat IRC client prior to version 1.8.9, xchat does not
filter the response from an IRC server when a /dns query is executed. xchat
resolves hostnames by passing the configured resolver and hostname to a shell,
so an IRC server may return a malicious response formatted so that arbitrary
commands are executed with the privilege of the user running xchat.
