Description

It was discovered that telepathy-gabble, the Jabber/XMPP connection manager for the Telepathy framework, is processing google:jingleinfo updates without validating their origin. This may allow an attacker to trick telepathy-gabble into relaying streamed media data through a server of his choice and thus intercept audio and video calls.
