[Backports-security-announce] Security Update for ngircd

Gerfried Fuchs uploaded new packages for ngircd which fixed the
following security problem:

CVE-2008-0285, Debian Bug #461067

  ngIRCd 0.10.x before 0.10.4 and 0.11.0 before 0.11.0-pre2 allows
  remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via crafted
  IRC PART message, which triggers an invalid dereference. 

For the etch-backports distribution the problem has been fixed in
version 0.10.3-2~bpo40+1.

For the lenny and sid distributions the problem has been fixed in
version 0.10.3-2.

Upgrade instructions

If you don't use pinning (see [1]) you have to update the packages
manually via "apt-get -t etch-backports install <packagelist>" 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
