Multiple ircii-based Clients Remote Overflows



The remote host is running a version of the BitchX IRC client that may contain buffer overflows.


Multiple vendor ircii-based client, including BitchX version 1.0c19 and possibly earlier, are vulnerable to multiple buffer overflows. A remote attacker could overflow a buffer to cause the corruption of heap memory, allowing the attacker to execute arbitrary code on the system or possibly cause the client to crash.


Upgrade or patch according to vendor recommendations.
