Description


Some vulnerabilities have been reported in ngIRCd, which can be exploited by malicious people to cause a DoS (Denial of Service).

The vulnerabilities are caused due to errors within the "Conn_GetCipherInfo()" and "Conn_UsesSSL()" functions in src/ngircd/conn.c, which can be exploited to crash the server.

Successful exploitation requires that the server is not running in standalone mode and is compiled with SSL/TLS support.

The vulnerabilities are reported in versions 13 through 14 prior to 14.1.


Solution:
Update to version 14.1.

Provided and/or discovered by:
Reported by the vendor.
