CVE-2010-2785 (
  The IRC Protocol component in KVIrc 3.x and 4.x before r4693 does not
  properly handle \ (backslash) characters, which allows remote
  authenticated users to execute arbitrary CTCP commands via vectors
  involving \r and \40 sequences, a different vulnerability than
  CVE-2010-2451 and CVE-2010-2452.
