    Debian-specific: no
    
    PkC has reported that there is a buffer overflow in sprintf() in micq
    versions 0.4.6, that allows to a remote attacker able to sniff packets
    to the ICQ server to execute arbitrary code on the victim system.
    
    We recommend you upgrade your micq package immediately.
