Package        : znc
Vulnerability  : denial of service
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s)      : CVE-2010-2448
Debian Bug     : 584929

It was discovered that znc, an IRC bouncer, is vulnerable to denial
of service attacks via a NULL pointer dereference when traffic
statistics are requested while there is an unauthenticated connection.

For the stable distribution (lenny), the problem has been fixed in
version 0.058-2+lenny4.

For the testing distribution (squeeze) and the unstable distribution (sid),
the problem has been fixed in version 0.090-2.

We recommend that you upgrade your znc packages.

Upgrade instructions
- --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
