Can you show, like a paste of traffic (line) and then referencing what you think is wrong?

This isn't actually anope, but I noticed that they were set this way in anope's anope_user SQL table, and connecting with it as a credential allows it

:69L UID NickServ 0 1624497040 services NickServ 0 +oS * * :Nickname Registration Service

the 8th token here, which I believe is UID
I'm not 100% on what's what, but I was told somewhere twice that a UID is supposed to start with a digit because the first three chars are supposed to reflect the SID.

Ah ok, because yeah.. anope traffic looks fine, it uses a proper UID. I'll remove all anope references and update the title of this bug to reflect the need for validation of the UID parameter.

Thanks for the report, should now be fixed. It should not affect any services out there. If it does, do let me know.

    Validate the UID in cmd_uid(). Reported by Valware in
    This does two things in cmd_uid() now:
    * It checks if parameter 6 in UID is a valid UID, using valid_uid()
    * It checks if the first 3 characters of the UID match the SID
