-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 - -------------------------------------------------------------------------- CONECTIVA LINUX SECURITY ANNOUNCEMENT - -------------------------------------------------------------------------- PACKAGE : gaim SUMMARY : Fixes for gaim's vulnerabilities DATE : 2005-04-27 15:11:00 ID : CLA-2005:949 RELEVANT RELEASES : 9, 10 - ------------------------------------------------------------------------- DESCRIPTION Gaim[1] is a multi-protocol instant messaging (IM) client. This announcement fixes three denial of service vulnerabilities that were encountered in Gaim. The fixed vulnerabilities are: CAN-2005-0965[2]: The gaim_markup_strip_html function allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a string that contains malformed HTML, which causes an out-of-bounds read. CAN-2005-0966[3]: The IRC protocol plugin allowed (1) remote attackers to inject arbitrary Gaim markup via irc_msg_kick, irc_msg_mode, irc_msg_part, irc_msg_quit, (2) remote attackers to inject arbitrary Pango markup and pop up empty dialog boxes via irc_msg_invite, or (3) malicious IRC servers to cause a denial of service (application crash) by injecting certain Pango markup into irc_msg_badmode, irc_msg_banned, irc_msg_unknown, irc_msg_nochan functions. CAN-2005-0967[4]: Sending a Gaim Jabber user a certain invalid file transfer request triggered an out-of-bounds read which caused Gaim to crash. For further informations on Gaim's vulnerabilities, please refer to the project's security page[5]. SOLUTION It is recommended that all Gaim users upgrade their packages. IMPORTANT: Gaim must be restarted after the upgrade in order to close the vulnerabilities.
