Synopsis
========

Gaim contains multiple vulnerabilities that can lead to a Denial of
Service.

Background
==========

Gaim is a full featured instant messaging client which handles a
variety of instant messaging protocols.

Affected packages
=================

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 net-im/gaim < 1.2.1 >= 1.2.1

Description
===========

Multiple vulnerabilities have been addressed in the latest release of
Gaim:

* A buffer overread in the gaim_markup_strip_html() function, which
is used when logging conversations (CAN-2005-0965).

* Markup tags are improperly escaped using Gaim's IRC plugin
(CAN-2005-0966).

* Sending a specially crafted file transfer request to a Gaim Jabber
user can trigger a crash (CAN-2005-0967).

Impact
======

An attacker could possibly cause a Denial of Service by exploiting any
of these vulnerabilities.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All Gaim users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-im/gaim-1.2.1"
