    Package        : gaim
    Vulnerability  : denial of service
    Problem-Type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CAN-2005-1269 CAN-2005-1934
    Two denial of service problems have been discovered in Gaim, a
    multi-protocol instant messaging client.  The Common Vulnerabilities
    and Exposures project identifies the following problems:
        A malformed Yahoo filename can result in a crash of the application.
        A malformed MSN message can lead to incorrect memory allocation
        resulting in a crash of the application.
    The old stable distribution (woody) does not seem to be affected.
    For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.2.1-1.3.
    For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.3.1-1.
    We recommend that you upgrade your gaim package.
