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.
While this issue has been previously corrected in the versions of the gajim package, as shipped with Fedora release of 15, 16, 17, and as shipped with Fedora EPEL 6, it still affects the version of the gajim package, as shipped with Fedora EPEL 5. Please schedule an update.
