FreeBSD : gaim -- remote DoS on receiving malformed HTML (3fa2b372-a9f5-11d9-a788-0001020eed82)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 18911
SynopsisThe remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related updates.
DescriptionThe GAIM team reports :
The gaim_markup_strip_html function in Gaim 1.2.0, and possibly earlier versions, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a string that contains malformed HTML, which causes an out-of-bounds read.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
