    A buffer overflow has been discovered in the Socks-5 proxy code of
    XChat, an IRC client for X similar to AmIRC.  This allows an attacker
    to execute arbitrary code on the users' machine.
    
    For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.8.9-0woody3.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.0.8-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your xchat and related packages.
