Fedora 9 : libgadu-1.8.2-1.fc9 (2008-9293)
High Nessus Plugin ID 34677
SynopsisThe remote Fedora host is missing a security update.
DescriptionSecurity fix for denial of service (crash) via a contact description with a large length, which triggers a buffer over-read. Successful exploitation would require a man-in-the-middle attack or hacking the Gadu-Gadu servers. No known exploits.
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.
SolutionUpdate the affected libgadu package.
