Description

Updated mICQ packages are available which fix a remote crash.

mICQ is an online messaging and conferencing program. mICQ 0.4.9 and earlier allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via malformed ICQ message types without a 0xFE separator character. Users of mICQ are advised to upgrade to these erratum packages containing mICQ version 0.4.10.2 which is not vulnerable to this issue.
