Description zurk 2000-03-25 02:22:10 UTC
IrcII is a well-known Internet Relay Chat (IRC) client for unix. Version
 4.4-7 and possibly previous versions are known to be vulnerable to a
 buffer overflow condition in their direct client-to-client (DCC) chat
 implementation. It may be possible to execute arbitrary code on a client
 attempting to initiate a dcc chat. Exploitation this vulnerability could
 result in a remote compromise with the privileges of the user running the
 ircII client.

Upgrade IRCII to version 4.4M.
      Michael Sandrof upgrade IrcII 4.4M
