Debian Security Advisory DSA-1744-1 security@debian.org

Package : weechat
Vulnerability : missing input sanitization
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CVE-2009-0661
Debian Bug : 519940
BugTraq ID : 34148


Sebastien Helleu discovered that an error in the handling of color codes
in the weechat IRC client could cause an out-of-bounds read of an internal
color array. This can be used by an attacker to crash user clients
via a crafted PRIVMSG command.


The weechat version in the oldstable distribution (etch) is not affected
by this problem.

For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
version 0.2.6-1+lenny1.

For the testing distribution (squeeze), this problem will be fixed soon.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 0.2.6.1-1.


We recommend that you upgrade your weechat packages.

Upgrade instructions
- --------------------

apt-get upgrade

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
