Mandrakelinux Security Update Advisory
_______________________________________________________________________

Package name: gaim
Advisory ID: MDKSA-2004:110
Date: October 21st, 2004

Affected versions: 10.0
______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

More vulnerabilities have been discovered in the gaim instant messenger client. The vulnerabilities pertinent to version 0.75, which is the version shipped with Mandrakelinux 10.0, are: installing smiley themes could allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary commands via shell metacharacters in the filename of the tar file that is dragged to the smiley selector. There is also a buffer overflow in the way gaim handles receiving very long URLs.

The provided packages have been patched to fix these problems. These issues, amongst others, have been fixed upstream in version 0.82.
