Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: Eggdrop: Buffer overflow (GLSA 200709-07)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: September 15, 2007
Updated: September 26, 2007
Bug(s): #179354
ID: 200709-07

Synopsis

A remote stack-based buffer overflow has been discovered in Eggdrop.

Background

Eggdrop is an IRC bot extensible with C or Tcl.

Affected Packages

Package: net-irc/eggdrop
Vulnerable: < 1.6.18-r3
Unaffected: >= 1.6.18-r3
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

Bow Sineath discovered a boundary error in the file mod/server.mod/servrmsg.c when processing overly long private messages sent by an IRC server.

Impact

A remote attacker could entice an Eggdrop user to connect the bot to a malicious server, possibly resulting in the execution of arbitrary code on the host running Eggdrop.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All Eggdrop users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-irc/eggdrop-1.6.18-r3"


References

CVE-2007-2807
