2) Security Issues
-------------------

--- [ Password Disclosure Vulnerability ] ---
===============================================


XChat 2.8.4-1 is prone to a Password Disclosure Vulnerability that could
expose XChat users to a leak of Sensitive Informations, such as the NickServ
and Server Password, allowing User Impersonation.

XChat leaves User's Passwords in clear in memory, an attacker could carve with a
Process Memory Dump of the Xchat process, and next by identifing some costants
string it's possible, with some byte displacement, to retrive the passwords.


--- [ PoC ] ---
===============

If a user has saved him/her own NickServ password or
Server Password a malicious person can launch a Process Memory Dumper
and look through the dumped memory and with a simple
string searching he/she can retrieve user password / server password.
