Description John Helmert III gentoo-dev Security 2021-03-24 13:59:29 UTC
From URL:


  A malicious irc user could nuke any other irc user that uses bitchx, ircii or
  scrollz out of irc (crash their irc client) by connecting to the same irc
  network and sending a malicious CTCP UTC message.


  For ircii: Update to ircii-20210314
  For bitchx and scrollz: none yet

Given bug 776772 it's possible there's other vulnerabilities here too.
