Description

Updated pidgin packages that fix a security issue are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 and 5.

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

Pidgin is an instant messaging program which can log in to multiple accounts on multiple instant messaging networks simultaneously. The AOL Open System for Communication in Realtime (OSCAR) protocol is used by the AOL ICQ and AIM instant messaging systems.

An invalid pointer dereference bug was found in the way the Pidgin OSCAR protocol implementation processed lists of contacts. A remote attacker could send a specially crafted contact list to a user running Pidgin, causing Pidgin to crash. (CVE-2009-3615)

These packages upgrade Pidgin to version 2.6.3. Refer to the Pidgin release notes for a full list of changes: http://developer.pidgin.im/wiki/ChangeLog

All Pidgin users should upgrade to these updated packages, which correct this issue. Pidgin must be restarted for this update to take effect.
