Mandrake: Updated gaim packages fix Print E-mail
User Rating:      How can I rate this item?
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Mandrake Gaim versions prior to version 1.1.4 suffer from a few security issues such as the HTML parses not sufficiently validating its input. This allowed a remote attacker to crash the Gaim client be sending certain malformed HTML messages (CAN-2005-0208 and CAN-2005-0473).

                 Mandrakelinux Security Update Advisory
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package name:           gaim
 Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2005:049
 Date:                   March 4th, 2005

 Affected versions:	 10.0, 10.1, Corporate 3.0
 ______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 Gaim versions prior to version 1.1.4 suffer from a few security issues
 such as the HTML parses not sufficiently validating its input.  This
 allowed a remote attacker to crash the Gaim client be sending certain
 malformed HTML messages (CAN-2005-0208 and CAN-2005-0473).
 
 As well, insufficient input validation was also discovered in the
 "Oscar" protocol handler, used for ICQ and AIM.  By sending specially
 crafted packets, remote users could trigger an inifinite loop in Gaim
 causing it to become unresponsive and hang (CAN-2005-0472).
 
 Gaim 1.1.4 is provided and fixes these issues.
