  <description>
    <p>
    Bow Sineath discovered a boundary error in the file
    mod/server.mod/servrmsg.c when processing overly long private messages
    sent by an IRC server.
    </p>
  </description>
  <impact type="normal">
    <p>
    A remote attacker could entice an Eggdrop user to connect the bot to a
    malicious server, possibly resulting in the execution of arbitrary code
    on the host running Eggdrop.
    </p>
  </impact>
  <workaround>
    <p>
    There is no known workaround at this time.
    </p>
  </workaround>
  <resolution>
    <p>
    All Eggdrop users should upgrade to the latest version:
    </p>
    <code>
    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=net-irc/eggdrop-1.6.18-r2&quot;</code>
  </resolution>
