    IRC client. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies
    the following problems:
    
    CVE-2017-9468
    
        Joseph Bisch discovered that Irssi does not properly handle DCC
        messages without source nick/host. A malicious IRC server can take
        advantage of this flaw to cause Irssi to crash, resulting in a
        denial of service.

        receiving incorrectly quoted DCC files. A remote attacker can take
