Slackware-13.0 ChangeLog (2010-05-18)

Tue May 18 18:30:53 UTC 2010

  • patches/packages/pidgin-2.7.0-i486-1_slack13.0.txz
    Upgraded to pidgin-2.7.0 and pidgin-encryption-3.1.
    The msn_emoticon_msg function in slp.c in the MSN protocol plugin in
    libpurple in Pidgin before 2.7.0 allows remote attackers to cause
    a denial of service (application crash) via a custom emoticon in a
    malformed SLP message.

    (* Security fix *)
