    It was discovered that telepathy-gabble, the Jabber/XMMP connection manager
    for the Telepathy framework, is processing google:jingleinfo updates without
    validating their origin.  This may allow an attacker to trick telepathy-gabble
    into relaying streamed media data through a server of his choice and thus
    intercept audio and video calls.
    
    
    For the oldstable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.7.6-1+lenny1.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.9.15-1+squeeze1.
    
    For the testing (wheezy) and unstable (sid) distributions, this problem
    will be fixed soon.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your telepathy-gabble packages.
