Description

The authors report:

Versions 3.2.0 and earlier of the pidgin-otr plugin contain a format string security flaw. This flaw could potentially be exploited by a remote attacker to cause arbitrary code to be executed on the user's machine. The flaw is in pidgin-otr, not in libotr. Other applications that use libotr are not affected.
