Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.64784
Category:FreeBSD Local Security Checks
Title:FreeBSD Ports: pidgin, libpurple, finch
Summary:FreeBSD Ports: pidgin, libpurple, finch
Description:The remote host is missing an update to the system
as announced in the referenced advisory.

The following packages are affected:
pidgin
libpurple
finch

CVE-2009-2694
The msn_slplink_process_msg function in
libpurple/protocols/msn/slplink.c in libpurple, as used in Pidgin
(formerly Gaim) before 2.5.9 and Adium 1.3.5 and earlier, allows
remote attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of
service (memory corruption and application crash) by sending multiple
crafted SLP (aka MSNSLP) messages to trigger an overwrite of an
arbitrary memory location. NOTE: this issue reportedly exists because
of an incomplete fix for CVE-2009-1376.

Solution:
Update your system with the appropriate patches or
software upgrades.
