Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in eggdrop, an advanced IRC robot. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems: It was discovered that eggdrop is vulnerable to a buffer overflow, which could result in a remote user executing arbitrary code. The previous DSA (DSA-1448-1) did not fix the issue correctly. It was discovered that eggdrop is vulnerable to a denial of service attack, that allows remote attackers to cause a crash via a crafted PRIVMSG.
