Gaim < 1.3.2 Multiple Vulnerabilities

medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 3160
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote host is vulnerable to a buffer overflow.


The remote host seems to be running Gaim, a popular open-source, multi-protocol instant messenger. It is reported that this version of Gaim is vulnerable to several remote flaws. An attacker exploiting these flaws would be able to create a Denial of Service (DoS) condition or possibly overflow system memory and execute arbitrary code.


Update to version 1.3.2 or higher.
