    Julien Cristau discovered that hybserv, a daemon running IRC services
    for IRCD-Hybrid, is prone to a denial of service attack via the commands
    option.
    
    
    For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.9.2-4+lenny2.
    
    Due to a bug in the archive system, it is not possible to release the
    fix for the oldstable distribution (etch) simultaneously. Therefore,
    etch will be fixed in version 1.9.2-4+etch1 as soon as it becomes
    available.
    
    For the testing distribution (squeeze), this problem will be fixed soon.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.9.2-4.1.
    
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your hybserv packages.
