|Gentoo Linux Security Advisory
Title: WeeChat: Denial of Service (GLSA 200904-04)
Date: April 04, 2009
A processing error in WeeChat might lead to a Denial of Service.
Wee Enhanced Environment for Chat (WeeChat) is a light and extensible console IRC client.
Vulnerable: < 0.2.6.1
Unaffected: >= 0.2.6.1
Architectures: All supported architectures
Sebastien Helleu reported an array out-of-bounds error in the colored message handling.
A remote attacker could send a specially crafted PRIVMSG command, possibly leading to a Denial of Service (application crash).
There is no known workaround at this time.
All WeeChat users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-irc/weechat-0.2.6.1"
