 Problem Description:

 A security vulnerability has been identified and fixed in pidgin:
 
 The clientautoresp function in family_icbm.c in the oscar protocol
 plugin in libpurple in Pidgin before 2.7.2 allows remote authenticated
 users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and
 application crash) via an X-Status message that lacks the expected
 end tag for a (1) desc or (2) title element (CVE-2010-2528).
 
 Packages for 2008.0 and 2009.0 are provided due to the Extended
 Maintenance Program for those products.
 
 This update provides pidgin 2.7.3, which is not vulnerable to this
 issue.
