Synopsis
========

A heap-based buffer overflow in InspIRCd may allow execution of
arbitrary code.

Background
==========

InspIRCd (Inspire IRCd) is a modular C++ IRC daemon

Affected packages
=================

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 net-irc/inspircd < 2.0.5-r1 >= 2.0.5-r1

Description
===========

A vulnerability in InspIRCd allows DNS compression features to control
the number of overflowed bytes sent to the heap-based buffer "res[]" in
dns.cpp.

Impact
======

A remote attacker could send specially crafted DNS responses, possibly
resulting in execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the
process or a Denial of Service condition.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All InspIRCd users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-irc/inspircd-2.0.5-r1"
