Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.67339
Category:Debian Local Security Checks
Title:Debian Security Advisory DSA 2038-1 (pidgin)
Summary:Debian Security Advisory DSA 2038-1 (pidgin)
Description:The remote host is missing an update to pidgin
announced via advisory DSA 2038-1.

Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in Pidgin, a multi
protocol instant messaging client. The Common Vulnerabilities and
Exposures project identifies the following problems:

CVE-2010-0420

Crafted nicknames in the XMPP protocol can crash Pidgin remotely.

CVE-2010-0423

Remote contacts may send too many custom smilies, crashing Pidgin.

Since a few months, Microsoft's servers for MSN have changed the protocol,
making Pidgin non-functional for use with MSN. It is not feasible to port
these changes to the version of Pidgin in Debian Lenny. This update
formalises that situation by disabling the protocol in the client. Users
of the MSN protocol are advised to use the version of Pidgin in the
repositories of www.backports.org.

For the stable distribution (lenny), these problems have been fixed in
version 2.4.3-4lenny6.

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
version 2.6.6-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your pidgin package.
