Package : eggdrop
Vulnerability : buffer overflow

Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s) : CVE-2007-2807

It was discovered that eggdrop, an advanced IRC robot, was vulnerable

arbitrary code.

For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in version
1.6.18-1etch1.

version 1.6.18-1.1

We recommend that you upgrade your eggdrop package.
