Synopsis
=======
BNC contains an input validation flaw which might allow a remote
attacker to issue arbitrary IRC related commands.

Background
=========
BNC is an IRC proxying server

Affected packages
================
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     Package      /  Vulnerable  /                          Unaffected
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
  1  net-irc/bnc       < 2.8.9                                >= 2.8.9

Description
==========
A flaw exists in the input parsing of BNC where part of the
sbuf_getmsg() function handles the backspace character incorrectly.

Impact
=====
A remote user could issue commands using fake authentication
credentials and possibly gain access to scripts running on the client
side.

Workaround
=========
There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
=========
All BNC users should upgrade to the latest version:

    # emerge sync

    # emerge -pv ">=net-irc/bnc-2.8.9"
    # emerge ">=net-irc/bnc-2.8.9"
