Buffer Overflow attack on gnomeICU version 0.96.1
I have recently recieved messages through my ICQ
account from a person using the 'Personal
World-Wide-Pager' available at www.ICQ.com
The messages were part of a buffer Overflow attack
which would crash gnomeICU and run shell commands.
The person sending the messages knew Exactly what
they were doing.

I am using gnomeICU version 0.96.1
Xfree86-4.01 on debian2r2

If anyone else has any information reguarding this
I would appreciate a responce.

Yeah, I had this one try copying the GnomeICU
dir from /usr/local/share - /usr/share probably
not an ideal solution but it fixes the problem :)

Me too !! While 0.94.* works perfectly even with latest gdk_pixbuf

Bug in displaying icons
I can't see any icon or image and I get this error:

Gdk-CRITICAL **: file gdkpixmap.c: line 812 (gdk_pixmap_ref): assertion `pixmap != NULL' failed.

Archive problem
Neither have I been able to get either archive to decompress. Odd that both are corrupted

archives apprently corrupted
Just tried downloading all 0.94 archives in the sourceforge directory tree and all of them give invalid end-of-file signatures. I downloaded in binary format. Anybody else having problems?

server down? also, multiway chat
is the web page server down? i can't reach it.

also, gnomeicu does not do multi-way chat: realtime chat with more than one person.

other than that, gnomeicu is a vastly superior icq client to most out there.
