Description Josh Bressers 2005-05-05 22:39:40 EDT
A buffer overflow has been found in Gaim.  It is possible for a remote attacker
to send a message containing a very long URL to overflow a buffer.  This attack
is mitigated by the fact that not all the messaging protocols allow messages
long enough to overflow this particular buffer.
