Trillian aim:// URI Handler Vulnerabilities

high Nessus Plugin ID 25757


The remote host contains an instant messaging application that is affected by two vulnerabilities.


The version of Trillian installed on the remote host contains a buffer overflow in its AIM protocol URI handler in 'aim.dll' and also allows creation of arbitrary files with arbitrary content using specially- crafted 'aim://'' URIs. A remote attacker may be able to leverage these issues to execute arbitrary code as the current user.


Upgrade to Trillian or later.
