"Versions of Gaim (an AOL instant message client) prior to 0.58 contain
a buffer overflow in the Jabber plug-in module. As well, a
vulnerability was discovered in the URL-handling code, where the
'manual' browser command passes an untrusted string to the shell
without reliable quoting or escaping. This allows an attacker to
execute arbitrary commands on the user's machine with the user's
permissions. Those using the built-in browser commands are not
vulnerable.

Update :

The 8.1 package had an incorrect dependency on perl. This package has
been replaced with a proper package. Please note the differing md5
sums."
