CVE-2013-0274 pidgin: missing nul termination of long values in UPnP responses
Last modified: 2014-09-13 14:59:19 EDT
A security flaw was found in the way UPnP implementation of libPurple processed certain UPnP responses (UPnP responses with overly long 'service type', 'public IP address', 'internal IP address', and 'AddRemovePortMapping protocol' values). A remote attacker could send a specially-crafted UPnP response that, when processed by Pidgin, would lead to pidgin executable crash.
