Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : BitchX (MDKSA-2000:079)

This script is Copyright (C) 2012-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing a security update.

Description :

Two bugs exist in the BitchX IRC client. A possible stack overflow
condition exists if a malformed DNS answer is processed by the client,
and the second bug allows this malformed DNS record to be embedded in
a valid DNS packet. Without the second bug, the malformed DNS record
wouldn't be processed 'correctly.'

Solution :

Update the affected BitchX package.

Risk factor :

Critical / CVSS Base Score : 10.0
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C)
