Watching Darren Reed vs Valdis Kletnieks on the Full Disclosure
promises all sorts of hilarity, far beyond whatever n3td3v could
have brought to the list.

ICQ is known to have a few remote bugs. I use meebo.com instead
of a client
due to these issues.
At which point you're probably trading known bugs for unknown
Of course, this is a battle the user can't win. The other option
toss the proprietary ICQ client and use some other open-source
Pidgin - at which point you're trading known ICQ bugs for unknown
At that point, your best bet is to consider 2 things:
1) What client am I most likely to see actual attacks against?
2) What client am I the most worried about attacks?
(Note the two don't have to be the same - widespread ICQ attacks
may be more
common, but maybe you worry more about getting hit with a Pidgin
it possibly means you're being targeted....)
