Hi Tomas. Can I please add one more security bug to the list? :-(

It was discovered yesterday by a Pidgin developer. We believe it is
not public knowledge.


ISSUE-16, discovered by Daniel Atallah
Remotely triggerable crash in IRC argument parsing.
A malicious server or man-in-the-middle could trigger a crash in
libpurple by sending a message with fewer than expected arguments.
