<description>
<p>Two vulnerabilities have been found in Quassel:</p>
<ul>
<li>Quassel does not properly handle multiple CTCP requests
(CVE-2010-3443).
</li>
<li>Quassel, when used with certain versions of Qt and PostgreSQL, does
not sanitize user input (CVE-2013-4422).
</li>
</ul>
</description>
<impact type="normal">
<p>A remote attacker could send multiple CTCP requests in single private
message, possibly resulting in a Denial of Service condition. Futhermore,
a remote attacker may be able to execute arbitrary SQL statements.
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>There is no known workaround at this time.</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>
<p>All Quassel users should upgrade to the latest version:</p>
<code>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose "&gt;=net-irc/quassel-0.9.1"
</code>
</resolution>
