Debian Security Advisory DSA-3806-1 [email protected]

Package : pidgin
CVE ID : CVE-2017-2640

It was discovered a vulnerability in Pidgin, a multi-protocol instant
messaging client. A server controlled by an attacker can send an invalid
XML that can trigger an out-of-bound memory access. This might lead to a
crash or, in some extreme cases, to remote code execution in the
client-side.

For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
version 2.11.0-0+deb8u2.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 2.12.0-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your pidgin packages.
