Package        : micq
Vulnerability  : denial of service
Problem-Type   : remote
Debian-specific: no

Rüdiger Kuhlmann, upstream developer of mICQ, a text based ICQ client,
discovered a problem in mICQ.  Receiving certain ICQ message types
that do not contain the required 0xFE seperator causes all versions to
crash.

For the current stable distribution (woody) this problem has been
fixed in version 0.4.9-0woody3.

For the old stable distribution (potato) this problem has been fixed
in version 0.4.3-4.1.

For the current unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been
fixed in version 0.4.9.1-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your micq package.

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.
