    irssi 0.8.4 backdoored.

    Irssi, an irc-client, has been found exploited. It isn't the binary itself that is backdoored, it is its configuration script. The site was cracked, and the distribution tarball was modified. The backdoor creates a connection to another server, and opens a shell on it. So far, no-one reported malicious activities.

    Details about the backdoor can be found at the irssi backdoor page.
