Description moggie 2010-01-26 03:30:08 UTC
Two vulnerabilities have been discovered in the 2.2.x branch of ratbox:

o The first affects the '/quote HELP' module and allows a user to trigger an IRCD crash on some platforms.
o The second affects the '/links' processing module when the flatten_links configuration option is not enabled.

Both of these issues have been corrected in the most recent ircd-ratbox-2.2.9 release for the 2.2.x branch. As a temporary work-around, the m_help.so and m_links.so modules can be unloaded until the IRCD itself is upgraded.

Note that the 2.2.x branch of ircd-ratbox is expected to be deprecated within the not too distant future. Admins wishing to keep up-to-date with developments may wish to consider moving to ratbox-3 (irc/ircd-ratbox-devel).

I'll take it.
Comment 2 moggie 2010-01-28 17:06:01 UTC
Please note that the 'flatten_links' work-around is only completely 
effective if the 'flatten_links' configuration option is set on all IRCD 
servers. Thanks.
