However, upstream released 1.2.3 in the meantime, fixing the incomplete fix in 1.2.2. Quoting news page: Unfortunately 1.2.2 did not fix all possible account hijacking loopholes. Another very similar flaw was found by Tero Marttila. In the migration to the user configuration storage abstraction layer, a few safeguards that prevent overwriting existing accounts disappeared. Over the week I went over all the related code to make sure that everything's done in a sane, safe and consistent way. http://www.bitlbee.org/main.php/news.r.html And changelog: Version 1.2.3 (released 2008-09-07) hilights: * Fixed a security issue similar to the previous account overwrite/hijack bug. http://www.bitlbee.org/main.php/changelog.html This should probably get a new id. -- Tomas Hoger / Red Hat Security Response Team
