According to its banner, the version of the ngIRCd chat service
running on the remote host contains a format string vulnerability. If
it was compiled with IDENT, DEBUG is enabled, and it's logging to
SYSLOG, a remote attacker can leverage this issue to execute arbitrary
code on the remote host subject to the privileges under which the
service operates, which is 'root' by default.
