    This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. discovered several problems in inspircd, an IRC daemon:
    
      - an incomplete patch for CVE-2012-1836 failed to adequately resolve
        the problem where maliciously crafted DNS requests could lead to
        remote code execution through a heap-based buffer overflow.
    
      - the incorrect processing of specific DNS packets could trigger an
        infinite loop, thus resulting in a denial of service.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.0.5-1+deb7u1.
    
    For the upcoming stable distribution (jessie) and unstable
    distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in version 2.0.16-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your inspircd packages.
