Package        : gaim
Vulnerability  : integer overflow
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s)      : CVE-2008-2927

It was discovered that gaim, an multi-protocol instant messaging client,
was vulnerable to several integer overflows in its MSN protocol handlers.
These could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code.

For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in version
1:2.0.0+beta5-10etch1.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this package is not present.

We recommend that you upgrade your gaim package.
