Package : cgiirc
Vulnerability : buffer overflows
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CVE-2006-2148
Debian Bug : 365680

Several buffer overflows have been discovered in cgiirc, a web-based
IRC client, which could be exploited to execute arbitrary code.

The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain cgiirc packages.

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 0.5.4-6sarge1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 0.5.4-6sarge1.

We recommend that you upgrade your cgiirc package.
