Red Hat Product Errata RHSA-2004:585 normal SHIPPED_LIVE Low: xchat security update 2004-10-27 04:00:00 UTC

Description Mark J. Cox 2004-10-11 08:19:31 UTC
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.

This will be RHSA-2004:585 as part of RHEL2.1 Update 6.
