Description Andy Pilate 2012-11-10 00:00:00 UTC
	We detected that weechat is vulnerable to a crash when sending a special coloured message. This vulnerability hits versions old from one year ago to now.
    The patch was pushed, but we need to update ports as soon as possible. I sended a mail to the port maintener, but without fast answer, I'm trying here.

Just update your clients! (or run /set irc.network.colors_receive off)
How-To-Repeat:     The Proof Of Concept is private. It's to avoid scripts kiddies to send a forged message on popular irc channels.

FYI. I won't have time to look into during this weekend, but someone
here should.
