Fedora 9 : quassel- (2008-9658)

High Nessus Plugin ID 34776


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


New upstream release fixes a security issue with CTCP handling in Quassel Core, that could potentially be exploited to send arbitrary IRC commands on your behalf.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.


Update the affected quassel package.
