When creating a Bodhi update request, please include the bug IDs of the respective parent bugs filed against the "Security Response" product.
Please mention CVE ids in the RPM changelog when available and only close this bug once all affected Fedora versions are fixed.
Bodhi update submission link:
These issue were fixed upstream in 2.5.6 (http://pidgin.im/news/security/). New builds are already in Koji, but not submitted in Bodhi yet. When submitting update requests, please refer to parent bugs in the request.
Updates have been submitted in Bodhi now:
They all reference the above bugs, but bodhi reported an internal server error while submitting the F10 & F11 updates and failed to add comments to the bugs.
That should not be a big deal, as another comment should be added by bodhi when updates are pushed to testing / stable.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
This message is a reminder that Fedora 11 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 11. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '11'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 11's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 11 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
These fixes were published a long time ago
