    Package        : micq
    Vulnerability  : denial of service
    Problem-Type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    
    Rüdiger Kuhlmann, upstream developer of mICQ, a text based ICQ client,
    discovered a problem in mICQ.  Receiving certain ICQ message types
    that do not contain the required 0xFE seperator causes all versions to
    crash.
    
    For the current stable distribution (woody) this problem has been
    fixed in version 0.4.9-0woody3.
    
    For the old stable distribution (potato) this problem has been fixed
    in version 0.4.3-4.1.
    
    For the current unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been
    fixed in version 0.4.9.1-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your micq package.
    
    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.
