EnergyMech is an IRC bot programmed in C.
A bug in EnergyMech fails to handle empty CTCP NOTICEs correctly, and
will cause a crash from a segmentation fault.
<impact type="normal">
By sending an empty CTCP NOTICE, a remote attacker could exploit this
vulnerability to cause a Denial of Service.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All EnergyMech users should update to the latest stable version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=net-irc/emech-3.0.2&quot;</code>
