Package        : gajim
CVE ID         : CVE-2016-10376
Debian Bug     : 863445

Gajim, a GTK+-based XMPP/Jabber client, unconditionally implements the
"XEP-0146: Remote Controlling Clients" extension, allowing a malicious
XMPP server to trigger commands to leak private conversations from
encrypted sessions. With this update XEP-0146 support has been disabled
by default and made opt-in via the 'remote_commands' option.

For the oldstable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed
in version 0.16-1+deb8u2.

For the stable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed prior
to the initial release.

We recommend that you upgrade your gajim packages.
