[slackware-security]  pidgin (SSA:2010-138-01)

New pidgin packages are available for Slackware 12.0, 12.1, 12.2, 13.0,
and -current to fix a security issue.


Here are the details from the Slackware 13.0 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/pidgin-2.7.0-i486-1_slack13.0.txz:  Upgraded.
  Upgraded to pidgin-2.7.0 and pidgin-encryption-3.1.
  The msn_emoticon_msg function in slp.c in the MSN protocol plugin in
  libpurple in Pidgin before 2.7.0 allows remote attackers to cause
  a denial of service (application crash) via a custom emoticon in a
  malformed SLP message.
  For more information, see:
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2010-1624
  (* Security fix *)
+--------------------------+


Where to find the new packages:
+-----------------------------+

HINT:  Getting slow download speeds from ftp.slackware.com?
Give slackware.osuosl.org a try.  This is another primary FTP site
for Slackware that can be considerably faster than downloading
directly from ftp.slackware.com.

Thanks to the friendly folks at the OSU Open Source Lab
(http://osuosl.org) for donating additional FTP and rsync hosting
to the Slackware project!  :-)

Also see the "Get Slack" section on http://slackware.com for
additional mirror sites near you.
