Gaim is a full featured instant messaging client which handles a
variety of instant messaging protocols.
</p>

<description>
<p>
Specially crafted SNAC packets sent by other instant-messaging
users can cause Gaim to loop endlessly (CAN-2005-0472). Malformed HTML
code could lead to invalid memory accesses (CAN-2005-0208 and
CAN-2005-0473).
</p>
</description>
<impact type="normal">
<p>
Remote attackers could exploit these issues, resulting in a Denial
of Service.
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>
There is no known workaround at this time.
</p>
</workaround>

<code>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=net-im/gaim-1.1.4&quot;</code>
