Mandriva Linux Security Update Advisory
_______________________________________________________________________

Package name: gaim
Advisory ID: MDKSA-2005:071
Date: April 13th, 2005

Affected versions: 10.1, Corporate 3.0
______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

More vulnerabilities have been discovered in the gaim instant messaging client:

A buffer overflow vulnerability was found in the way that gaim escapes HTML, allowing a remote attacker to send a specially crafted message to a gaim client and causing it to crash (CAN-2005-0965).

A bug was discovered in several of gaim's IRC processing functions that fail to properly remove various markup tags within an IRC message. This could allow a remote attacker to send specially crafted message to a gaim client connected to an IRC server, causing it to crash (CAN-2005-0966).

Finally, a problem was found in gaim's Jabber message parser that would allow a remote Jabber user to send a specially crafted message to a gaim client, bausing it to crash (CAN-2005-0967).

Gaim version 1.2.1 is not vulnerable to these issues and is provided with this update.
