    Package        : xchat
    Problem type   : remote exploit
    Debian-specific: no
    
    The version of X-Chat that was distributed with Debian GNU/Linux 2.2
    has a vulnerability in the URL handling code: when a user clicks on
    a URL X-Chat will start netscape to view its target. However it
    did not check the URL for shell metacharacters, and this could be
    abused to trick xchat into executing arbitraty commands.
    
    This has been fixed in version 1.4.3-0.1, and we recommend you
    upgrade your xchat package(s) immediately.
    
    Update: the powerpc packages mentioned in the first release of this
    advisory were linked with a version of libgtk that is not available
    in Debian GNU/Linux 2.2. They have been recompiled with the correct
    version and reuploaded.
    
    wget url
            will fetch the file for you
    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.
    
    
    Debian GNU/Linux 2.2 alias potato
    - ---------------------------------

      architectures.
