Description Murray McAllister 2014-05-21 07:46:38 UTC
It was reported that the libgadu 1.12.0-rc3 release fixes a memory corruption issue, triggered by a crafted response from a file relay server:

http://www.openwall.com/lists/oss-security/2014/05/15/8

A malicious file relay server could possibly use this flaw to execute arbitrary code in an application that uses libgadu.

Comment 1 Murray McAllister 2014-05-21 07:47:43 UTC
Created libgadu tracking bugs for this issue:

Affects: fedora-all [bug 1099777]

Comment 3 Murray McAllister 2014-05-26 04:30:00 UTC
Looks like Pidgin is affected too:

http://launchpadlibrarian.net/175981395/pidgin_1%3A2.10.9-0ubuntu3_1%3A2.10.9-0ubuntu3.1.diff.gz

Fedora apperas to use the system verison of libgadu, so that will not be affected once libgadu is fixed.

From an initial investigation, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 uses its own embedded version and is vulnerable. Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 does not appear to have the affected functionality.

Comment 6 Fedora Update System 2014-06-01 22:24:26 UTC
libgadu-1.12.0-0.5.rc3.fc20 has been pushed to the Fedora 20 stable repository.  If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.

Comment 7 Fedora Update System 2014-06-10 03:08:41 UTC
libgadu-1.12.0-0.5.rc3.fc19 has been pushed to the Fedora 19 stable repository.  If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
