at a backdoor in Unreal IRC, an Internet relay chat platform for Linux. "An announcement on the Unreal IRCd Forums states "This is very embarrassing...We found out that the Unreal18.104.22.168.tar.gz file on our mirrors has been replaced quite a while ago with a version with a backdoor (trojan) in it. This backdoor allows a person to execute ANY command with the privileges of he user running the ircd. The backdoor can be executed regardless of any user restrictions (so even if you have passworded server or hub that doesn't allow any users in)."
