Package        : kvirc
Vulnerability  : several
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s)      : CVE-2010-2451 CVE-2010-2452

Two security issues have been discovered in the DCC protocol support
code of kvirc, a KDE-based next generation IRC client, which allow
the overwriting of local files through directory traversal and the
execution of arbitrary code through a format string attack.

For the stable distribution (lenny), these problems have been fixed in
version 3.4.0-5.

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
version 4.0.0~svn4340+rc3-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your kvirc packages.
