Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


An updated xchat package that fixes a stack buffer overflow in the SOCKSv5
proxy code.

X-Chat is a graphical IRC chat client for the X Window System.

A stack buffer overflow has been fixed in the SOCKSv5 proxy code.
A possible hacker could create a malicious SOCKSv5 proxy server in such a way
that X-Chat would execute arbitrary code if a victim configured X-Chat to
use the proxy. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
(cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2004-0409 to this issue.

Users of X-Chat should upgrade to this erratum package, which contains a
backported security patch, and is not vulnerable to this issue.
