All versions of the EPIC script Light prior to 2.7.30p5 (on the 2.7 branch) and prior to 2.8pre10 (on the 2.8 branch) running on any platform are vulnerable to a remotely-exploitable bug, which can lead to nearly arbitrary code execution.

Package        : epic4-script-light
Vulnerability  : arbitrary script execution
Problem-Type   : remote
Debian-specific: no

All versions of the EPIC script Light prior to 2.7.30p5 (on the 2.7
branch) and prior to 2.8pre10 (on the 2.8 branch) running on any
platform are vulnerable to a remotely-exploitable bug, which can lead
to nearly arbitrary code execution.

This problem has been fixed in version 2.7.30p5-1.1 for the current
stable distribution (woody) and in version 2.7.30p5-2 for the unstable
distribution (sid).  The old stable distribution (potato) is not
affected, since it doesn't contain the Light package.

We recommend that you upgrade your epic4-script-light package and
restart your IRC client.

wget url
	will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
