    Package        : cgiirc
    Vulnerability  : buffer overflows
    Problem type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CVE-2006-2148
    Debian Bug     : 365680
    
    Several buffer overflows have been discovered in cgiirc, a web-based
    IRC client, which could be exploited to execute arbitrary code.
    
    The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain cgiirc packages.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
    version 0.5.4-6sarge1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
    version 0.5.4-6sarge1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your cgiirc package.
