Security exploits in Irssi

#1

Using QB on Ubuntu 16.04 and Irssi v0.8.19

According to https://irssi.org/security/irssi_sa_2016.txt it should be v0.8.20

Can I have QB upgrade Irssi or is it not necessary?


#2

I’m confused. Why are you running the old irssi and not the community edition?

Your version: https://github.com/irssi/irssi

Community version:

Quckbox has only ever used the community version.


#3

I think @tarp is referring to irssi in general.

In which case, this package is maintained by Ubuntu and will be updated by

sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade

Never a bad idea to keep your system up to date.


#4

you are correct, I’m sorry. It looks like it hasnt hit the repos yet.


#5

Thank you all, I’ll just have to wait for an update to hit the repos.
