Vulnerability Assessment Details

psyBNC Server Detection

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the presence of psyBNC.

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host appears to be running psyBNC on this port.

psyBNC is an 'easy-to-use, multi-user, permanent IRC-Bouncer with many features. Some
of its features include symmetric ciphering of talk and connections (Blowfish and IDEA),
the possibility of linking multiple bouncers to an internal network including a shared
partyline, vhost- and relay support to connected bouncers and an extensive online help
system.'

The existence of this service indicates a high possibility that your server has been
compromised by a remote attacker. The only sure fix is to reinstall from scratch.
