crafted message and cause Pidgin to crash, leading to a denial of service. This
issue only affected Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, 11.04 and 11.10. (CVE-2011-4601)

Thijs Alkemade discovered that Pidgin incorrectly handled malformed voice and
video chat requests in the XMPP protocol handler. A remote attacker could send
a specially crafted message and cause Pidgin to crash, leading to a denial of
service. This issue only affected Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, 11.04 and 11.10.
(CVE-2011-4602)

Diego Bauche Madero discovered that Pidgin incorrectly handled UTF-8
sequences in the SILC protocol handler. A remote attacker could send a

10.04 LTS. (CVE-2011-4922)

Clemens Huebner and Kevin Stange discovered that Pidgin incorrectly handled
nickname changes inside chat rooms in the XMPP protocol handler. A remote

messages in the MSN protocol handler. A remote attacker could send a specially
crafted message and cause Pidgin to crash, leading to a denial of service. This
issue only affected Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, 11.04 and 11.10. (CVE-2012-1178)
