Trillian IRC Module Channel Name Format String

High

Synopsis

The remote host is vulnerable to a remote 'format string' flaw.

Description

The remote host is running the Trillian IRC client. Trillian versions 0.725 and 0.73 are vulnerable to a format string attack in the IRC module. A remote attacker operating a malicious IRC server can deceive another user into joining a channel with a specially crafted name where malicious code can be stored. The malicious code could then be executed on the user's system, once the user joins the channel.
