Description Jan Lieskovsky 2010-09-05 15:01:43 UTC
A denial of service flaw was found in the way Bip IRC Bouncer
exchanged user credentials by initiating the IRC protocol session.
A remote, unauthenticated user could send a specially crafted
connection request, leading to bip daemon crash (NULL pointer dereference)
