A vulnerability has been discovered in the 3.0.x branch of ratbox which affects the '/links' module.
The vulnerability enables a user to trigger an event that can cause the IRCD to crash. This issue has been corrected in the ircd-ratbox-3.0.6 release. All IRCD admins running previous versions are advised to upgrade immediately.
As a temporary work-around, the m_links.so module can be unloaded until the upgrade takes place.
I'll take it.
