    Package        : ircii
    Vulnerability  : buffer overflows
    Problem-Type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    
    Timo Sirainen discovered several problems in ircII, a popular
    client for Internet Relay Chat (IRC).  A malicious server could
    craft special reply strings, triggering the client to write beyond
    buffer boundaries.  This could lead to a denial of service if the
    client only crashes, but may also lead to executing of arbitrary code
    under the user id of the chatting user.
    
    For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
    version 20020322-1.1.
    
    For the old stable distribution (potato) these problems have been
    fixed in version 4.4M-1.1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
    version 20030315-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your ircII package.
