CAN-2004-0409 XChat buffer overflow in socks5 proxy
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:06:54 EST
A flaw in the XChat's Socks-5 proxy code could allow arbitrary code
execution. To exploit this flaw an attacker would need to create a
malicious socks-5 proxy that the victim connects to.
This issue was public on Mon, 5 Apr 2004 but is LOW severity.
