A buffer overflow in decoding of IRC colors in strings has been fixed.

Versions affected are 0.3.6 to 0.3.9 (and devel), problem is fixed in
new stable version (and in devel).

Therefore, all users of a stable version are invited to upgrade to
Users with devel version can update to latest devel, which contains
the fix.

If you can not upgrade now, it is recommended to disable IRC colors in
messages using following command:
  /set irc.network.colors_receive off
