Gaim < 0.59.1 Remote Command Execution



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 prone to a remote command execution issue. An attacker may send malicious code encoded in hyperlinks in instant messages that will be executed by the remote host.


Upgrade to version 0.59.1 or higher.
