Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related
updates.

Description :

The GAIM team reports :

A remote user could cause Gaim to crash on some systems by sending the
Gaim user a file whose filename contains certain invalid characters.
It is unknown what combination of systems are affected, but it is
suspected that Windows users and systems with older versions of GTK+
are especially susceptible.
