This vulnerability has been modified since it was last analyzed by the NVD. It is awaiting reanalysis which may result in further changes to the information provided.
KsIRC 1.3.12 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via a long PRIVMSG string when connecting to an Internet Relay Chat (IRC) server, which causes an assertion failure and results in a NULL pointer dereference. NOTE: this issue was originally reported as a buffer overflow.
View Analysis Description
Buffer overflow in KsIRC 1.3.12 allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a long PRIVMSG string when connecting to an Internet Relay Chat (IRC) server.
We do not consider a crash of a client application such as KsIRC to be a security issue.
