Description Josh Bressers 2009-05-26 18:56:04 UTC
mod/server.mod/servmsg.c in Eggheads Eggdrop and Windrop 1.6.19 and
earlier allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash)
via a crafted PRIVMSG that causes an empty string to trigger a
negative string length copy. NOTE: this issue exists because of an
incorrect fix for CVE-2007-2807.
