Fedora Core 2 : gaim-1.1.4-0.FC2 (2005-171)

High Nessus Plugin ID 19620


The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.


This update resolves another DoS issue in parsing malformed HTML, and a MSN related crash that folks were hitting often.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.


Update the affected gaim and / or gaim-debuginfo packages.
