USN-800-1: irssi vulnerability
Posted on: 07/13/2009 10:30 PM

A new irssi vulnerability update is available for Ubuntu Linux. Here the announcement:

Ubuntu Security Notice USN-800-1 July 13, 2009
irssi vulnerability
CVE-2009-1959
===========================================================

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS
Ubuntu 8.04 LTS
Ubuntu 8.10
Ubuntu 9.04

This advisory also applies to the corresponding versions of
Kubuntu, Edubuntu, and Xubuntu.

The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the
following package versions:

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS:
irssi 0.8.10-1ubuntu1.1

Ubuntu 8.04 LTS:
irssi 0.8.12-3ubuntu3.1

Ubuntu 8.10:
irssi 0.8.12-4ubuntu2.1

Ubuntu 9.04:
irssi 0.8.12-6ubuntu1.1

After a standard system upgrade you need to restart irssi to effect the
necessary changes.

Details follow:

It was discovered that irssi did not properly check the length of strings
when processing WALLOPS messages. If a user connected to an IRC network
where an attacker had IRC operator privileges, a remote attacker could
cause a denial of service.
