Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : znc (MDVSA-2015:013)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 80432


The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.


Updated znc packages fix security vulnerabilities :

Multiple vulnerabilities were reported in ZNC version 1.0 which can be exploited by malicious authenticated users to cause a denial of service. These flaws are due to errors when handling the editnetwork, editchan, addchan, and delchan page requests; they can be exploited to cause a NULL pointer dereference (CVE-2013-2130).

Adding an already existing channel to a user/network via web admin in ZNC causes a crash if the channel name isn't prefixed with '#' (CVE-2014-9403).


Update the affected znc and / or znc-devel packages.
