  <description>
    <p>A vulnerability in InspIRCd allows DNS compression features to control
      the number of overflowed bytes sent to the heap-based buffer "res[]" in
      dns.cpp.
    </p>
  </description>
  <impact type="high">
    <p>A remote attacker could send specially crafted DNS responses, possibly
      resulting in execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the
      process or a Denial of Service condition.
    </p>
  </impact>
  <workaround>
    <p>There is no known workaround at this time.</p>
  </workaround>
  <resolution>
    <p>All InspIRCd users should upgrade to the latest version:</p>
    
    <code>
      # emerge --sync
      # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose "&gt;=net-irc/inspircd-2.0.5-r1"
    </code>
