Oracle Solaris Third-Party Patch Update : pidgin (multiple_vulnerabilities_in_pidgin2)

This script is Copyright (C) 2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Solaris system is missing a security patch for third-party
software.

Description :

The remote Solaris system is missing necessary patches to address
security updates :

- The Yahoo! protocol plugin in libpurple in Pidgin before
2.10.8 does not properly validate UTF-8 data, which
allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service
(application crash) via crafted byte sequences.
(CVE-2012-6152)

- The MXit protocol plugin in libpurple in Pidgin before
2.10.7 might allow remote attackers to create or
overwrite files via a crafted (1) mxit or (2)
mxit/imagestrips pathname. (CVE-2013-0271)

- Buffer overflow in http.c in the MXit protocol plugin in
libpurple in Pidgin before 2.10.7 allows remote servers
to execute arbitrary code via a long HTTP header.
(CVE-2013-0272)

- sametime.c in the Sametime protocol plugin in libpurple
in Pidgin before 2.10.7 does not properly terminate long
user IDs, which allows remote servers to cause a denial
of service (application crash) via a crafted packet.
(CVE-2013-0273)

- upnp.c in libpurple in Pidgin before 2.10.7 does not
properly terminate long strings in UPnP responses, which
allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service
(application crash) by leveraging access to the local
network. (CVE-2013-0274)

- Multiple integer signedness errors in libpurple in
Pidgin before 2.10.8 allow remote attackers to cause a
denial of service (application crash) via a crafted
timestamp value in an XMPP message. (CVE-2013-6477)

- gtkimhtml.c in Pidgin before 2.10.8 does not properly
interact with underlying library support for wide Pango
layouts, which allows user-assisted remote attackers to
cause a denial of service (application crash) via a long
URL that is examined with a tooltip. (CVE-2013-6478)

- util.c in libpurple in Pidgin before 2.10.8 does not
properly allocate memory for HTTP responses that are
inconsistent with the Content-Length header, which
allows remote HTTP servers to cause a denial of service
(application crash) via a crafted response.
(CVE-2013-6479)

- libpurple/protocols/yahoo/libymsg.c in Pidgin before
2.10.8 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of
service (crash) via a Yahoo! P2P message with a crafted
length field, which triggers a buffer over-read.
(CVE-2013-6481)

- Pidgin before 2.10.8 allows remote MSN servers to cause
a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and crash)
via a crafted (1) SOAP response, (2) OIM XML response,
or (3) Content-Length header. (CVE-2013-6482)

- The XMPP protocol plugin in libpurple in Pidgin before
2.10.8 does not properly determine whether the from
address in an iq reply is consistent with the to address
in an iq request, which allows remote attackers to spoof
iq traffic or cause a denial of service (NULL pointer
dereference and application crash) via a crafted reply.
(CVE-2013-6483)

- The STUN protocol implementation in libpurple in Pidgin
before 2.10.8 allows remote STUN servers to cause a
denial of service (out-of-bounds write operation and
application crash) by triggering a socket read error.
(CVE-2013-6484)

- Buffer overflow in util.c in libpurple in Pidgin before
2.10.8 allows remote HTTP servers to cause a denial of
service (application crash) or possibly have unspecified
other impact via an invalid chunk-size field in chunked
transfer-coding data. (CVE-2013-6485)

- gtkutils.c in Pidgin before 2.10.8 on Windows allows
user-assisted remote attackers to execute arbitrary
programs via a message containing a file: URL that is
improperly handled during construction of an
explorer.exe command. NOTE: this vulnerability exists
because of an incomplete fix for CVE-2011-3185.
(CVE-2013-6486)

- Integer overflow in libpurple/protocols/gg/lib/http.c in
the Gadu-Gadu (gg) parser in Pidgin before 2.10.8 allows
remote attackers to have an unspecified impact via a
large Content-Length value, which triggers a buffer
overflow. (CVE-2013-6487)

- Integer signedness error in the MXit functionality in
Pidgin before 2.10.8 allows remote attackers to cause a
denial of service (segmentation fault) via a crafted
emoticon value, which triggers an integer overflow and a
buffer overflow. (CVE-2013-6489)

- The SIMPLE protocol functionality in Pidgin before
2.10.8 allows remote attackers to have an unspecified
impact via a negative Content-Length header, which
triggers a buffer overflow. (CVE-2013-6490)

- The IRC protocol plugin in libpurple in Pidgin before
2.10.8 does not validate argument counts, which allows
remote IRC servers to cause a denial of service
(application crash) via a crafted message.
(CVE-2014-0020)
