    Yves Younan and Ryan Pentney discovered that libgadu, a library for
    accessing the Gadu-Gadu instant messaging service, contained an
    integer overflow leading to a buffer overflow.  Attackers which
    impersonate the server could crash clients and potentially execute
    arbitrary code.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed
    in version 1:1.9.0-2+squeeze2.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1:1.11.2-1+deb7u1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1:1.11.3-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libgadu packages.
