Problem description

A vulnerability in the MSN protocol handler in the gaim instant messenger application was discovered. When receiving unexpected sequences of MSNSLP messages, it is possible that an attacker could trigger an internal buffer overflow which could lead to a crash or even code execution as the user running gaim. The updated packages are patched to fix this problem. This problem does not affect Mandrakelinux 10.0 installations.
