Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: Quassel: Multiple Vulnerabilities (GLSA 201311-03)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: November 07, 2013
Bug(s): #338879, #487632
ID: 201311-03

Synopsis

Two vulnerabilities in Quassel may result in Denial of Service or
SQL injection.


Background

Quassel is a Qt4/KDE4 IRC client suppporting a remote daemon for 24/7
connectivity.


Affected Packages

Package: net-irc/quassel
Vulnerable: < 0.9.1
Unaffected: >= 0.9.1
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

Two vulnerabilities have been found in Quassel:
  • Quassel does not properly handle multiple CTCP requests
    (CVE-2010-3443).
  • Quassel, when used with certain versions of Qt and PostgreSQL, does
    not sanitize user input (CVE-2013-4422).


Impact

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.


Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All Quassel users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
      # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-irc/quassel-0.9.1"
