Package        : weechat
CVE ID         : CVE-2017-8073
Debian Bug     : 861121

It was discovered that weechat, a fast and light chat client, is prone
to a buffer overflow vulnerability in the IRC plugin, allowing a remote
attacker to cause a denial-of-service by sending a specially crafted
filename via DCC.

For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.0.1-1+deb8u1.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.7-3.

We recommend that you upgrade your weechat packages.
