Synopsis :

The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.

Description :

Multiple integer overflow flaws were found in the way Kopete processes
Gadu-Gadu messages. A remote attacker could send a specially crafted
Gadu-Gadu message which would cause Kopete to crash or possibly
execute arbitrary code. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures
project assigned the name CVE-2005-1852 to this issue.

Users of Kopete should update to these packages which contain a patch
to correct this issue.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
