    Yves Younan of Cisco Talos discovered several vulnerabilities in the
    MXit protocol support in pidgin, a multi-protocol instant messaging
    client. A remote attacker can take advantage of these flaws to cause a
    denial of service (application crash), overwrite files, information
    disclosure, or potentially to execute arbitrary code.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in
    version 2.11.0-0+deb8u1.
    
    For the testing distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed
    in version 2.11.0-1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 2.11.0-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your pidgin packages.
