Description Alex Legler (RETIRED) archtester gentoo-dev Security 2011-09-08 20:10:23 UTC
CtcpParser::packedReply in src/core/ctcpparser.cpp in Quassel does not process certain CTCP requests correctly, allowing a remote attacker connected to the same IRC network as the victim to cause a Denial of Service condition by sending specially crafted CTCP requests. This was demonstrated in various exploits on freenode today.

Fixed in git commit in $URL, released as quassel-0.7.3.

Maintainers: Can we stabilize 0.7.3?

Amd64 and x86 stable, works on both chroots.

Anything else? :)
