Description Jarno Huuskonen 2000-07-27 10:05:01 UTC
As reported in BUGTRACK you can DoS rxvt 2.6.1
with
echo -e "ESCAPE[4;65536;65536t" (where ESCAPE is \033)

rxvt seems to consume all memory and machine becomes unusable for a
while.

rxvt-2.6.3 seems to correct this bug, so you should upgrade the package.
