DESCRIPTION:
Adam Baldwin has discovered a weakness in Encrypted Messenger, which
can be exploited by malicious people to cause a DoS (Denial of
Service).

The weakness is caused due to an error in the processing of incoming
messages. This can be exploited to cause the Encrypted Messenger
plug-in to crash by sending a specially crafted message containing
specific characters.

NOTE: The Instant Messenger application will not crash, but only the
affected plug-in.

The weakness has been confirmed on version 3.0.71. Other versions may
also be affected.

SOLUTION:
Deny messages from users not present in the contact list.
