Description

New pidgin packages are available for Slackware 12.2, 13.0, 13.1, 13.37, and -current to fix security issues.

Here are the details from the Slackware 13.37 ChangeLog:

patches/packages/pidgin-2.10.6-i486-1_slack13.37.txz: Upgraded. Fixes a security issue for users of MXit: Incorrect handing of inline images in incoming instant messages can cause a buffer overflow and in some cases can be exploited to execute arbitrary code. For more information, see: http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2012-3374 ( Security fix )
