The developers of the open source IRC server UnrealIRCd have had to report that the file servers of the project were compromised several months ago and the IRC servers code, Unreal220.127.116.11.tar.gz was replaced by a version with a backdoor. The backdoor allows anyone to execute commands on the server running UnrealIRCd, with the privileges of the user running the IRC daemon, even if the IRC server is a hub or requires passwords to access it normally. According to the report, the version with the backdoor was apparently placed on file servers in November 2009, but remained unnoticed until now.
