ircu/snircd remote crash vulnerability
From: Chris Porter <cdp34 () cam ac uk>
Date: 24 Mar 2008 01:29:50 +0000
ircu (upto and including 188.8.131.52)
snircd (upto and including 1.3.4)
and many other ircu derivatives
send_user_mode in s_user.c does not check that the argument after a +r mode
is present, if it is not than the NULL sentinel may be missed, causing the
function to iterate over the boundary of the array.
One possible exploit:
/mode nickname i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i r r r r s
This won't work if there's another NULL directly after the first from the
previous parsed command, if this is the case one can just append more modes
or send some other junk to the ircd.
Upgrade to the very latest version of ircu/snircd.
