Vulnerability : buffer overflow
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CVE-2005-3863
BugTraq ID : 15600
Debian Bug : 340959

Mehdi Oudad and Kevin Fernandez discovered a buffer overflow in the
ktools library which is used in centericq, a text-mode multi-protocol
instant messenger client, which may lead local or remote attackers to
execute arbitrary code.

For the old stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 4.5.1-1.1woody2.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 4.20.0-1sarge4.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 4.21.0-6.

We recommend that you upgrade your centericq package.
