Debian DSA-2069-1 : znc - denial of service

Low Nessus Plugin ID 47705


The remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.


It was discovered that ZNC, an IRC bouncer, is vulnerable to denial of service attacks via a NULL pointer dereference when traffic statistics are requested while there is an unauthenticated connection.


Upgrade the znc packages.

For the stable distribution (lenny), the problem has been fixed in version 0.058-2+lenny4.
