The remote NNTP server is affected by an authentication bypass
The remote NNTP server contains a logic error that causes clients
that send only a username, neglecting to send a password, to be
treated as authenticated. This may permit an unauthenticated, remote
attacker to view and post to restricted newsgroups, impersonating
other users in the process.
