                 Mandrakelinux Security Update Advisory
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package name:           gaim
 Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2004:117
 Date:                   November 1st, 2004

 Affected versions:      10.1
 ______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 A vulnerability in the MSN protocol handler in the gaim instant
 messenger application was discovered.  When receiving unexpected
 sequences of MSNSLP messages, it is possible that an attacker could
 trigger an internal buffer overflow which could lead to a crash or
 even code execution as the user running gaim.
 
 The updated packages are patched to fix this problem.  This problem
 does not affect Mandrakelinux 10.0 installations.
