USN85-1 : gaim vulnerabilities

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
gaim vulnerabilities

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote package "gaim" is missing a security patch.

Description :

The Gaim developers discovered that the HTML parser did not
sufficiently validate its input. This permited a remote attacker to
crash the Gaim client by sending certain malformed HTML messages.
(CVE-2005-0208, CVE-2005-0473)

Another lack of sufficient input validation was found in the "Oscar"
protocol handler which is used for ICQ and AIM. By sending specially
crafted packets, remote users could trigger an infinite loop in Gaim
which caused Gaim to become unresponsive and hang. (CVE-2005-0472)

Solution :

Upgrade to :
- gaim-1.0.0-1ubuntu1.2 (Ubuntu 4.10)



Network Security Threat Level: High
