The remote instant messaging server is affected by a privilege
The remote host is running a version of the IgnitionServer IRC service
which might be vulnerable to a flaw that lets a remote attacker gain
elevated privileges on the system. A local IRC operator can supply an
unofficial command to the server to obtain elevated privileges and
become a global IRC operator.
