|Package||net-irc/unrealircd on all architectures|

UnrealIRCd is an Internet Relay Chat (IRC) daemon.
Multiple vulnerabilities have been reported in UnrealIRCd:
A remote attacker could exploit these vulnerabilities to cause the execution of arbitrary commands with the privileges of the user running UnrealIRCd, or a Denial of Service condition. NOTE: By default UnrealIRCd on Gentoo is run with the privileges of the "unrealircd" user.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All UnrealIRCd users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-irc/unrealircd-220.127.116.11-r1"
