Pardus Linux Security Advisory 2010-115 
      Date: 2010-08-12
  Severity: 4
      Type: Remote

A vulnerability was fixed in kvirc, which  can  be  used  by  malicious
people to execute arbitrary IRC commands via CTCP request.


The IRC Protocol component in KVIrc 3.x and 4.x before r4693  does  not
properly  handle \  (backslash)  characters,   which   allows   remote
authenticated users to execute  arbitrary  CTCP  commands  via  vectors
involving  \r and  \40  sequences,  a  different  vulnerability   than
CVE-2010-2451 and CVE-2010-2452.

Affected packages:

  Pardus 2009:
    kvirc, all before 4.0_rc3-13-9

There are update(s) for kvirc. You can update them via Package  Manager
or with a single command from console:

    pisi up kvirc
