Title: ZNC: Privilege escalation (GLSA 201908-15)
A vulnerability in ZNC allows users to escalate privileges.
ZNC is an advanced IRC bouncer.
Vulnerable: < 1.7.4_rc1
Unaffected: >= 1.7.4_rc1
Architectures: All supported architectures
It was discovered that ZNC’s “Modules.cpp” allows remote
authenticated non-admin users to escalate privileges.
A remote authenticated attacker could escalate privileges and
subsequently execute arbitrary code or conduct a Denial of Service
There is no known workaround at this time.
All ZNC users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-irc/znc-1.7.4_rc1"
