Mandriva Linux Security Advisory 2010-041 - Multiple security vulnerabilities has been identified and fixed Certain malformed SLP messages can trigger a crash because the MSN protocol plugin fails to check that all pieces of the message are set correctly. In a user in a multi-user chat room has a nickname containing ' ' then libpurple ends up having two users with username ' ' in the room, and Finch crashes in this situation. We do not believe there is a possibility of remote code execution. oCERT notified us about a problem in Pidgin, where a large amount of processing time will be used when inserting many smileys into an IM or chat window. This should not cause a crash, but Pidgin can become unusable slow. Packages for 2008.0 are provided for Corporate Desktop 2008.0 customers. This update provides pidgin 2.6.6, which is not vulnerable to these issues.
