    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.
