Two vulnerabilities have been discovered in WeeChat:
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted script or send messages with specially crafted colors, possibly resulting in execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the process, or a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
