    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.

      its next revision.
