XChat CTCP Ping Arbitrary Remote IRC Command Execution



The remote host is vulnerable to an flaw which allows attackers to execute arbitrary commands.


The remote host is running the XChat IRC client. X-Chat versions 1.4.2 and 1.4.3 could allow a remote attacker to execute IRC commands. A remote attacker can send a specially crafted CTCP ping request to execute IRC commands on the IRC server and gain elevated privileges.


Upgrade or patch according to vendor recommendations.
