#531 closed Defect (Invalid)

DCC SEND exploit can cause Colloquy to drop connections

Reported by: nessup[at] Owned by: timothy
Component: Chat Core (IRC) Version: 2.0 (Mac)
Severity: Critical Keywords: linksys netgear dcc send chat
Cc: bobmo@…


An exploit found only to affect people with Linksys or Netgear routing hardware with non-encrypted IRC connections over port 6667 will cause the connection to drop.

To reproduce this bug, type "DCC SEND [INSERT AT LEAST 14 CHARACTERS HERE]" into any non-encrypted IRC session on port 6667 with a Linksys/Netgear? router.

mIRC has a fix to this, but I am not aware of it.

I am unable to reproduce this in Colloquy. Did you actually get this to work?

The reproducible steps do not describe this correctly.

Here is another report that use to crash the old Irssi nightly, but the new 3/11 nightly is not affected.

Here's the link, not sure if the bug is *identical*, but the string we were using that crashed you was DCC SEND "anythinggoeshere" 0 0 0

If the text contained spaces, it didn't work. Either way, should be an easy fix since it's reproducible.
