Description
=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D

A bug in EnergyMech fails to handle empty CTCP NOTICEs correctly, and
will cause a crash from a segmentation fault.

Impact
=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D

By sending an empty CTCP NOTICE, a remote attacker could exploit this
vulnerability to cause a Denial of Service.

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
