Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2005:071 (gaim).



More vulnerabilities have been discovered in the gaim instant messaging client:

A buffer overflow vulnerability was found in the way that gaim escapes HTML,
permiting a remote attacker to send a specially crafted message to a gaim client
and causing it to crash (CVE-2005-0965).

A bug was discovered in several of gaim's IRC processing functions that fail to
properly remove various markup tags within an IRC message. This could permit a
remote attacker to send specially crafted message to a gaim client connected to
an IRC server, causing it to crash (CVE-2005-0966).

Finally, a problem was found in gaim's Jabber message parser that would permit a
remote Jabber user to send a specially crafted message to a gaim client,
bausing it to crash (CVE-2005-0967).

Gaim version 1.2.1 is not vulnerable to these issues and is provided with this
update.
