[slackware-security]  EPIC4 security fixes (SSA:2003-141-01)

New EPIC4 packages are available to fix security problems found
by Timo Sirainen.  EPIC4 is an IRC (Internet Relay Chat) client.
Under certain circumstances, a malicious IRC server could cause
EPIC4 to crash, or possibly to run arbitrary code as the user
running EPIC4.

All sites running EPIC4 are advised to upgrade.

More information on the problem can be found here:
