Red Hat Product Errata RHSA-2009:1139 normal SHIPPED_LIVE Moderate: pidgin security and bug fix update 2009-07-02 15:23:25 UTC

Description Jan Lieskovsky 2009-06-29 17:13:42 UTC
An out-of-memory denial of service flaw was found in the Pidgin's
Open System for CommunicAtion in Realtime (OSCAR) protocol implementation.
If a remote ICQ user sent a web message to the local Pidgin user using this protocol, it would lead to excessive memory allocation and denial of service (Pidgin crash).
