Description Mark J. Cox (Product Security) 2004-06-28 06:06:52 EDT
SUSE reported two potential exploitable remote vulnerabilities
in the Gaim msn protocol.  These need investigation to discover if
they require a malicious server to be exploited, or if they can be
exploited by packets by a peer.

RHEL2.1 shipped with gaim-0.59.1 which doesn't appear to have either
of these flaws (protocol code is totally different).

Embargoed.  No date yet set.
