Subject: CVE Request -- KVIrc -- Remote CTCP commands execution via specially-crafted
 CTCP parameter

Hi Steve,

   user with nickname 'unic0rn' reported:

a deficiency in the way KVIrc IRC client extracted the "next" CTCP parameter from message
pointer. A remote, authenticated attacker, valid KVIrc user, could send a specially-crafted
DCC Client-To-Client Protocol (CTCP) message, like:

/ctcp nickname DCC GET\rQUIT\r
/ctcp nickname DCC GET\rPRIVMSG\40#channel\40:epic\40fail\r

which could lead to / allow remote (KVIrc) CTCP commands execution. Different vulnerability
than CVE-2010-2451:
and CVE-2010-2452:

Upstream patch:

Workaround: (from [1])
   /option boolNotifyFailedDccHandshakes 0


Could you please allocate a CVE id for this?

Thanks && Regards, Jan.
