Description Josh Bressers 2005-04-04 14:32:26 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #153311 +++

Two Gaim DoS issues were reported to bugtraq:

1. Buffer overread in gaim_markup_strip_html()

A programming error in gaim_markup_strip_html() causes a buffer
overread when stripping a string containing malformed HTML.

2. Lack of escaping in the IRC protocol plugin

In several places, the IRC protocol plugin handles user messages
without escaping markup

This issue should also affect FC2
