epic4 - buffer overflows



Debian Security Advisory

DSA-298-1 epic4 -- buffer overflows

Date Reported:
02 May 2003
Affected Packages:
epic4
Vulnerable:
Yes
Security database references:
No other external database security references currently available.
More information:

Timo Sirainen discovered several problems in EPIC4, a popular client for Internet Relay Chat (IRC). A malicious server could craft special reply strings, triggering the client to write beyond buffer boundaries. This could lead to a denial of service if the client only crashes, but may also lead to executing of arbitrary code under the user id of the chatting user.

For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in version 1.1.2.20020219-2.1.

For the old stable distribution (potato) these problems have been fixed in version pre2.508-2.3.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in version 1.1.11.20030409-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your EPIC4 package.

Fixed in:

Debian GNU/Linux 2.2 (potato)
