Gaim is a full featured instant messaging client which handles a
variety of instant messaging protocols.
Multiple vulnerabilities have been addressed in the latest release of
<ul><li>A buffer overread in the gaim_markup_strip_html() function,
which is used when logging conversations (CAN-2005-0965).</li>
<li>Markup tags are improperly escaped using Gaim's IRC plugin
<li>Sending a specially crafted file transfer request to a Gaim Jabber
user can trigger a crash (CAN-2005-0967).</li>
<impact type="low">
An attacker could possibly cause a Denial of Service by exploiting any
of these vulnerabilities.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Gaim users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=net-im/gaim-1.2.1&quot;</code>
