Description Josh Bressers 2010-01-11 13:08:12 UTC
slp.c in the MSN protocol plugin in libpurple in Pidgin 2.6.4 and
Adium 1.3.8 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service
(memory corruption) or possibly have unspecified other impact via
unknown vectors, a different issue than CVE-2010-0013.

Comment 13 Vincent Danen 2010-02-18 20:38:01 UTC
This is not an issue for pidgin in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 due to the MSN protocol support in that version (1.5.1) is out-dated and no longer supported by MSN servers.  We do not have any plans to backport MSN protocol changes to that version of Pidgin.
