Trillian < XMPP Decoding Heap Overflow

High Nessus Plugin ID 25148


The remote host contains an instant messaging application which is susceptible to a heap overflow vulnerability.


The version of Trillian installed on the remote host contains a buffer overflow vulnerability which can be triggered when decoding a malformed XMPP (eXtensible Messaging and Presence Protocol) message.

To exploit this flaw, an attacker would need to send a specially crafted XMPP message to a user of this program, thus causing arbitrary code execution.


Upgrade to Trillian or later.
