FreeBSD : gaim -- buffer overflow in MSN protocol support (1e6c4008-245f-11d9-b584-0050fc56d258)
Critical Nessus Plugin ID 18861
SynopsisThe remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related updates.
DescriptionDue to a buffer overflow in the MSN protocol support for gaim 0.79 to 1.0.1, it is possible for remote clients to do a denial-of-service attack on the application. This is caused by an unbounded copy operation, which writes to the wrong buffer.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
