Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing one or more security updates.

Description :

Two vulnerabilities were reported in ircd-hybrid, ircd-ratbox, and
oftc-hybrid. The first is an integer overflow that can lead to a
denial of service or, possibly, the execution of arbitrary code on the
ircd server (CVE-2009-4016 (patch [1])), the second is a NULL pointer
dereference that can lead to a denial of service of the ircd server
(CVE-2010-0300 (patch [2])). This has been corrected in upstream
ircd-ratbox 2.2.9 [3]. CVE-2010-0300 may be ircd- ratbox specific,
however CVE-2009-4016 affects both ircd servers. [1]
