Mandriva: Subject: [Security Announce] [ MDVA-2009:161 ] silc-toolkit Print E-mail
User Rating:      How can I rate this item?
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Mandrake The silc-toolkit was linked in a wrong way, it depended on symbols no longer exported by libidn. This made it impossible to use the SILC protocol from pidgin. This update changes the linking to use the included IDN resolver instead of libidn.
