Debian Security Advisory DSA 287-1                     security@debian.org

Package        : epic
Vulnerability  : buffer overflows
Problem-Type   : remote
Debian-specific: no

Timo Sirainen discovered several problems in EPIC, a popular client
for Internet Relay Chat (IRC).  A malicious server could craft special
reply strings, triggering the client to write beyond buffer
boundaries.  This could lead to a denial of service if the client only
crashes, but may also lead to executing of arbitrary code under the
user id of the chatting user.

For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
version 3.004-17.1.

For the old stable distribution (potato) these problems have been
fixed in version 3.004-16.1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 3.004-19.

We recommend that you upgrade your EPIC package.

Package        : lpr
Vulnerability  : buffer overflow
Problem-Type   : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id         : CAN-2003-0144

The correction for CAN-2003-0144 for the old stable distribution
(potato) was a little bit too strict apparently and this update
corrects this.  For completeness here is the advisory text:

   A buffer overflow has been discovered in lpr, a BSD lpr/lpd line
   printer spooling system.  This problem can be exploited by a local
   user to gain root privileges, even if the printer system is set up
   properly.

For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 2000.05.07-4.3.

For the old stable distribution (potato) this problem has been fixed
in version 0.48-1.2.

For the stable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 2000.05.07-4.20.

We recommend that you upgrade your lpr package immediately.
