The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing a security update.
Two bugs exist in the BitchX IRC client. A possible stack overflow
condition exists if a malformed DNS answer is processed by the client,
and the second bug allows this malformed DNS record to be embedded in
a valid DNS packet. Without the second bug, the malformed DNS record
wouldn't be processed 'correctly.'
Update the affected BitchX package.
