Description Tim Sammut (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2010-09-27 06:30:15 UTC
From $url:

 If we receive multiple CTCP requests in one PRIVMSG we now answer with
 one packed NOTICE containing all CTCP replies. This fixes a possible
 DoS Attack rendering Quassels IRC connection useless. Upgrading is
 strongly recommended. Thanks to Jima for reporting and supporting.

Fixed software is already in the tree, and vulnerable code has already been removed. This bug is for GLSA tracking only.
