Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2005:139 (gaim).

(CVE-2005-2102)
a remote AIM or ICQ user can cause a buffer overflow in Gaim
by setting an away message containing many AIM substitution strings
(CVE-2005-2103)
a memory alignment bug in the library used by Gaim to access
the Gadu-Gadu network can result in a buffer overflow on non-x86 architecture

These problems have been corrected in gaim 1.5.0 which is provided with this
update.
