<p>Gajim is a Jabber and XMPP client written in PyGTK.</p>
<p>Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Gajim. Please review
the CVE identifiers referenced below for details.
<impact type="normal">
<p>A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted link
using Gajim, possibly resulting in execution of arbitrary code with the
privileges of the process or a Denial of Service condition. Furthermore,
a remote attacker could use a specially crafted Jabber ID, possibly
resulting in execution of arbitrary SQL statements.
<p>A local attacker could perform symlink attacks to overwrite arbitrary
files with the privileges of the user running the application.
<p>There is no known workaround at this time.</p>
<p>All Gajim users should upgrade to the latest version:</p>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose "&gt;=net-im/gajim-0.15-r1"
