    Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Irssi, a terminal based
    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.
    
    CVE-2017-9469
    
        Joseph Bisch discovered that Irssi does not properly handle
        receiving incorrectly quoted DCC files. A remote attacker can take
        advantage of this flaw to cause Irssi to crash, resulting in a
        denial of service.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed
    in version 0.8.17-1+deb8u4.
    
    For the stable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.0.2-1+deb9u1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.0.3-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your irssi packages.
