Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2007:009 (kdenetwork).
KsIRC 1.3.12 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service
(crash) via a long PRIVMSG string when connecting to an Internet Relay
Chat (IRC) server, which causes an assertion failure and results in a
NULL pointer dereference.
Updated packages are patched to address this issue.
