Debian Security Advisory DSA 156-1 email@example.com http://www.debian.org/security/ Martin Schulze August 22th, 2002 http://www.debian.org/security/faq
Package : epic4-script-light Vulnerability : arbitrary script execution Problem-Type : remote Debian-specific: no
All versions of the EPIC script Light prior to 2.7.30p5 (on the 2.7 branch) and prior to 2.8pre10 (on the 2.8 branch) running on any platform are vulnerable to a remotely-exploitable bug, which can lead to nearly arbitrary code execution.
This problem has been fixed in version 2.7.30p5-1.1 for the current stable distribution (woody) and in version 2.7.30p5-2 for the unstable distribution (sid). The old stable distribution (potato) is not affected, since it doesn't contain the Light package.
We recommend that you upgrade your epic4-script-light package and restart your IRC client.
wget url will fetch the file for you dpkg -i file.deb will install the referenced file.
If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for sources.list as given below:
apt-get update will update the internal database apt-get upgrade will install corrected packages
You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the footer to the proper configuration.
