#15452 closed patch (fixed)

IRC SASL sends invalid commands for empty SASL data

Reported by: grawity Owned by: elb
Milestone: 2.10.8 Component: IRC
Version: 2.10.6 Keywords:


In some cases, sasl_client_step() returns a zero-length response (for example, when using the EXTERNAL mechanism).

When this happens, Pidgin sends AUTHENTICATE without any arguments and the server complains about "missing parameter". The correct way is to send a + as the data (i.e. AUTHENTICATE +).

Patch attached...hopefully.
