Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


An updated gaim package that fixes a buffer overflow security issue is now
available.

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

Gaim is an Internet Instant Messaging client.

A heap based buffer overflow issue was discovered in the way Gaim processes
away messages. A remote attacker could send a specially crafted away
message to a Gaim user logged into AIM or ICQ which could result in
arbitrary code execution. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
(cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2005-2103 to this issue.

Users of gaim are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which
contains backported patches and is not vulnerable to this issue.
