A vulnerability in ZNC allows users to escalate privileges.
|Package||net-irc/znc on all architectures|
|Affected versions||< 1.7.4_rc1|
|Unaffected versions||>= 1.7.4_rc1|
ZNC is an advanced IRC bouncer.
It was discovered that ZNC’s “Modules.cpp” allows remote authenticated non-admin users to escalate privileges.
A remote authenticated attacker could escalate privileges and subsequently execute arbitrary code or conduct a Denial of Service attack.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All ZNC users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-irc/znc-1.7.4_rc1"
