Problem description

Two bugs exist in the BitchX IRC client. A possible stack overflow condition exists if a malformed DNS answer is processed by the client, and the second bug allows this malformed DNS record to be embedded in a valid DNS packet. Without the second bug, the malformed DNS record wouldn't be processed "correctly."
