rights of the user. This was not possible on all protocols, due to
message length restrictions. Jabber are SILC were known to be
vulnerable. (CVE-2005-1261)

Siebe Tolsma discovered a Denial of Service attack in the MSN handler.
By sending a specially crafted SLP message with an empty body, a
remote attacker could crash Gaim. (CVE-2005-1262)
