FreeBSD : gaim -- AIM/ICQ non-UTF-8 filename crash (09db2844-0b21-11da-bc08-0001020eed82)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 21383


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


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.


Update the affected packages.
