<title>KSirc: Denial of Service vulnerability</title>
KSirc is vulnerable to a Denial of Service attack.
<product type="ebuild">ksirc</product>
<announced>January 29, 2007</announced>
<revised>January 30, 2007: 01</revised>
<package name="kde-base/ksirc" auto="yes" arch="*">
<unaffected range="ge">3.5.5-r1</unaffected>
<vulnerable range="lt">3.5.5-r1</vulnerable>
KSirc is the default KDE IRC client.
KSirc fails to check the size of an incoming PRIVMSG string sent from
an IRC server during the connection process.
<impact type="normal">
A malicious IRC server could send a long PRIVMSG string to the KSirc
client causing an assertion failure and the dereferencing of a null
pointer, resulting in a crash.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All KSirc users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=kde-base/ksirc-3.5.5-r1&quot;</code>
