Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2007:009 (kdenetwork).

KsIRC 1.3.12 permits 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

Updated packages are patched to address this issue.
