Description Josh Bressers 2009-05-12 18:05:36 EDT
A flaw was found in the way Pidgin's PurpleCircBuffer object is expanded.
If the buffer is full when more data arrives, it results in corruption of
the data stored in the buffer. This corrupt data could possibly result in
confusing or misleading data being presented to the user, or possibly crash
Pidgin.
