    Package        : gaim
    Vulnerability  : memory alignment bug
    Problem-Type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CAN-2005-2370
    Szymon Zygmunt and Michal Bartoszkiewicz discovered a memory alignment
    error in libgadu (from ekg, console Gadu Gadu client, an instant
    messaging program) which is included in gaim, a multi-protocol instant
    messaging client, as well.  This can not be exploited on the x86
    architecture but on others, e.g. on Sparc and lead to a bus error,
    in other words a denial of service.
    The old stable distribution (woody) does not seem to be affected by
    this problem.
    For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.2.1-1.4.
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem will be fixed soon.
    We recommend that you upgrade your gaim package.
