Description

The remote host appears to be running Gaim, a popular open-source multi-protocol instant messenger. It is reported that this version of Gaim is prone to a flaw in the way that it handles malformed HTML data. An attacker exploiting this flaw would need to be able to communicate with a vulnerable GAIM user. Upon successful exploitation, the Gaim client would stop responding. There is a second issue with this version of Gaim that is similar to the first. Specifically, downloaded files which include bracket characters like '(' or ')' will cause the client to crash.
