Title: Quassel: Multiple Vulnerabilities (GLSA 201311-03)
Date: November 07, 2013
Bug(s): #338879, #487632
Two vulnerabilities in Quassel may result in Denial of Service or
Quassel is a Qt4/KDE4 IRC client suppporting a remote daemon for 24/7
Vulnerable: < 0.9.1
Unaffected: >= 0.9.1
Architectures: All supported architectures
Two vulnerabilities have been found in Quassel:
- Quassel does not properly handle multiple CTCP requests
- Quassel, when used with certain versions of Qt and PostgreSQL, does
not sanitize user input (CVE-2013-4422).
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.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Quassel users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-irc/quassel-0.9.1"
