Description Josh Bressers 2004-10-14 08:20:20 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
Comment 1 Josh Bressers 2004-10-19 14:04:00 EDT
Public, removing embargo.
Comment 2 Warren Togami 2004-10-20 22:07:16 EDT
This is fixed in gaim-1.0.1-1.FC3 shipping in FC3 final.  I am testing
and preparing gaim-1.0.2 for FC2 and FC3 updates now.
Comment 3 Warren Togami 2004-10-20 22:18:50 EDT
Crap... the security update for gaim was rejected from FC3 final. 
1.0.2 update coming immediately.
Comment 4 Warren Togami 2004-10-31 03:50:16 EST
This security update has subsequently made FC3 final, and issued as
1.0.2 to FC2.
