    A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:
    
    - Ubuntu 13.04
    - Ubuntu 12.10
    - Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
    
    Summary:
    
    telepathy-idle could be made to expose sensitive information over the
    network.
    
    Software Description:
    - telepathy-idle: IRC connection manager for Telepathy
    
    Details:
    
    It was discovered that telepathy-idle did not perform any server
    certificate validation when using SSL connections. If a remote attacker
    were able to perform a man-in-the-middle attack, this flaw could be
    exploited to alter or compromise confidential information.

    The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
    package versions:
