                 Mandrakelinux Security Update Advisory
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package name:           gaim
 Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2004:110
 Date:                   October 21st, 2004

 Affected versions:      10.0
 ______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 More vulnerabilities have been discovered in the gaim instant
 messenger client.  The vulnerabilities pertinent to version 0.75,
 which is the version shipped with Mandrakelinux 10.0, are:  installing
 smiley themes could allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary
 commands via shell metacharacters in the filename of the tar file that
 is dragged to the smiley selector.  There is also a buffer overflow in
 the way gaim handles receiving very long URLs.
 
 The provided packages have been patched to fix these problems.  These
 issues, amongst others, have been fixed upstream in version 0.82.
