Look at a lot of the ICQ exploits too, they are a good starting ground
on how NOT to structure a IM service. Also AIMs direct connect feature
while you are sending files and such shows your IP address on both
ends by using netstat (not really an exploit but I would consider it a
vunlrebility), but always rember there is no patch for human
stupidity, soo that bug is always exploitable

hi, GAIM has been found to be exploitable remotely, although it is a
old vulnerability. I wish this information may help you.

Gaim, an instant messenger client, contains a number of bugs which may
allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code on the remote host.
To exploit these bugs, an attacker would need to send malformed instant
messages to a user of this host.
See CAN-2004-0005, CAN-2004-0006, CAN-2004-0007, CAN-2004-0008
