Description Jan Lieskovsky 2012-06-19 14:51:58 UTC
A SQL injection flaw was found in the way the logger module of Gajim, a Jabber client written in PyGTK, performed sanitization of conversation messages, when retrieving list of days having log entries. A remote attacker could use a specially-crafted Jabber ID (JID), which once processed by the Gajim's get_last_conversation_lines() method could lead to arbitrary SQL statement execution.
