ignitionServer < 0.3.6p1 Channel Locking Remote DoS

high Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 2919
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote host is vulnerable to a Denial of Service (DoS) attack.


The remote host is running an ignitionServer IRC server. This version of ignitionServer is reported to be prone to a remote remote denial of service in the way that the server handles channel locking. Specifically, a non-operator can create a locked channel which cannot be unlocked by an authorized operator. The only way to clear the channel would be to reboot the server. This can cause a loss of availability.


Upgrade to version 0.3.6p1 or higher.
