ngIRCd is a free open source daemon for Internet Relay Chat (IRC).
Florian Westphal discovered a buffer overflow caused by an integer
underflow in the Lists_MakeMask() function of lists.c.
<impact type="high">
A remote attacker can exploit this buffer overflow to crash the ngIRCd
daemon and possibly execute arbitrary code with the rights of the
ngIRCd daemon process.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All ngIRCd users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=net-irc/ngIRCd-0.8.2&quot;</code>
