Description Josh Bressers 2004-10-14 08:18:41 EDT
Buffer overflow when receiving unexpected sequence of MSNSLP messages
Affected code: src/protocols/msn/slplink.c memcpy was used without
checking the size of the buffer before copying to it.  Additionally, a
logic flaw was causing the wrong buffer to be used as the destination
for the copy under certain circumstances.

This issue affects gaim 0.79-1.0.1
