A vulnerability was reported  to Debian for POE::Component::IRC, where it did not remove carriage returns and line feeds. This affects tools or IRC bots using the perl module, and can be used to execute arbitrary IRC commands by passing an argument such as "some text\rQUIT" to the 'privmsg' handler, which would cause the client to disconnect from the server.
Upstream has fixed ,, the issue and it is included in the current 6.32 release.
