    Package        : gaim
    Vulnerability  : denial of service
    Problem-Type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CAN-2005-0472
    It has been discovered that certain malformed SNAC packets sent by
    other AIM or ICQ users can trigger an infinite loop in Gaim, a
    multi-protocol instant messaging client, and hence lead to a denial of
    service of the client.
    Two more denial of service conditions have been discovered in newer
    versions of Gaim which are fixed in the package in sid but are not
    present in the package in woody.
    For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.58-2.5.
    For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.1.3-1.
    We recommend that you upgrade your gaim packages.
