 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2013:025

 Package : pidgin
 Date    : March 14, 2013
 Affected: Enterprise Server 5.0

 Problem Description:

 Multiple vulnerabilities has been discovered and corrected in pidgin:
 The MXit protocol plugin in libpurple in Pidgin before 2.10.7 might
 allow remote attackers to create or overwrite files via a crafted
 (1) mxit or (2) mxit/imagestrips pathname (CVE-2013-0271).
 Buffer overflow in http.c in the MXit protocol plugin in libpurple
 in Pidgin before 2.10.7 allows remote servers to execute arbitrary
 code via a long HTTP header (CVE-2013-0272).
 sametime.c in the Sametime protocol plugin in libpurple in Pidgin
 before 2.10.7 does not properly terminate long user IDs, which allows
 remote servers to cause a denial of service (application crash)
 via a crafted packet (CVE-2013-0273).
 upnp.c in libpurple in Pidgin before 2.10.7 does not properly terminate
 long strings in UPnP responses, which allows remote attackers to
 cause a denial of service (application crash) by leveraging access
 to the local network (CVE-2013-0274).
 This update provides pidgin 2.10.7, which is not vulnerable to
 these issues.
