Description

An updated gaim package that fixes two denial of service issues is now available.

This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team.

The Gaim application is a multi-protocol instant messaging client.

Jacopo Ottaviani discovered a bug in the way Gaim handles Yahoo! Messenger file transfers. It is possible for a malicious user to send a specially crafted file transfer request that causes Gaim to crash. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2005-1269 to this issue.

Additionally, Hugo de Bokkenrijder discovered a bug in the way Gaim parses MSN Messenger messages. It is possible for a malicious user to send a specially crafted MSN Messenger message that causes Gaim to crash. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2005-1934 to this issue.

Users of gaim are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which contains version 1.3.1 and is not vulnerable to these issues.
