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.


Upgrade Instructions
- --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
