According to his calculations, the server would need to send 13 times the amount of memory it wants to leak. The issue is a missing free of the base64 data. Please advise whether that issue needs a CVE? Patch: https://github.com/irssi/irssi/commit/19c51789967a2f63da033e60f6 ef08848b9cd144 Furthermore, Hanno Böck found the issue of a missing NULL sentinel when initialising Perl, which crashes under ASan. Since this happens only on boot and is not exposed to the net, we have no reason to believe that there is any issue here. Also, that bug has been around since the inception of Perl scripting module. Patch: https://github.com/irssi/irssi/pull/619/commits/677fb1f55ca52d0e 43c93f7d8361d333ff5bffd6 In any case, those issues have been addressed in Irssi 1.0.1 Thanks for your attention,
