Hi! Would it be possible to issue a CVE for a new crash in Pidgin?
Please use CVE-2011-2942 for this issue.
Also looking at http://pidgin.im/news/security it seems two other
security issues were also fixed in 2.10.0, do you want CVEs to be
assigned for them as well?
Please do. Since they're published in the form of upstream advisories
we'd like to properly track them in the Debian Security Tracker.
That's fine by me. As an upstream developer I don't feel like I have a
strong incentive to obtain a CVE. But if it's helpful to packagers, than
The two issues in question are discussed here:
This is a MSN crash. Use CVE-2011-3184
The second one only affects Pidgin on Microsoft Windows.
Use CVE-2011-3185 for this.
