Two vulnerabilities have found in irssi. The first issue could allow man-in-the-middle attacks due to a missing comparison of SSL server hostnames and the certificate domain names (e.g. CN).

A second vulnerability, related to the nick matching code, could be triggered by remote attackers in order to crash an irssi client when leaving a channel.
