 Description  « Hide
If for any reason badly formed list of events is used in isc_events_que(), it's sent to server and processed without any sanity checks (for server reads data after the end of passed buffer). As a result event with name, longer than expected, can be returned to client, passed to callback routine and cause BOF on client.

Added minimum sanity check for malformed EPB on server and check for size of received event notification on client.
