Description Stefan Behte (RETIRED) gentoo-dev Security 2009-05-29 20:36:00 UTC
CVE-2009-1789 (
  mod/server.mod/servmsg.c in Eggheads Eggdrop and Windrop 1.6.19 and
  earlier allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash)
  via a crafted PRIVMSG that causes an empty string to trigger a
  negative string length copy.  NOTE: this issue exists because of an
  incorrect fix for CVE-2007-2807.
