Mandrakelinux Security Update Advisory
_______________________________________________________________________

Package name: xchat
Advisory ID: MDKSA-2004:036
Date: April 21st, 2004

Affected versions: 10.0, 9.2
______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

A remotely exploitable vulnerability was discovered in the Socks-5 proxy code in XChat. By default, socks5 traversal is disabled, and one would also need to connect to an attacker's own custom proxy server in order for this to be exploited. Successful exploitation could lead to arbitrary code execution as the user running XChat.

The provided packages are patched to prevent this problem.
