Patrick Matthäi uploaded new packages for znc which fixed the following security problems:

TEMP-0537977-000291, Debian BTS #537977

It was discovered that znc, an IRC proxy, did not properly process certain DCC requests, allowing attackers to upload arbitrary files.

For the etch-backports distribution the problem has been fixed in version 0.074-1~bpo40+1.

For the lenny-backports distribution the problem has been fixed in version 0.074-1~bpo50+1.

For the lenny and sid distribution the problem has been fixed in version 0.074-1.

Upgrade instructions

If you don't use pinning (see [1]) you have to update the packages manually via "apt-get -t etch-backports install znc" with the packagelist of your installed packages affected by this update. [1] <http://backports.org/dokuwiki/doku.php?id=instructions>

We recommend to pin the backports repository to 200 so that new versions of installed backports will be installed automatically:


Package: * Pin: release a=etch-backports Pin-Priority: 200


Package: * Pin: release a=lenny-backports Pin-Priority: 200
