|Bugzilla:||554335: CVE-2010-0277 pidgin MSN protocol plugin memory corruption|
The MITRE CVE dictionary describes this issue as:
slp.c in the MSN protocol plugin in libpurple in Pidgin before 2.6.6, including 2.6.4, and Adium 1.3.8 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and application crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a malformed MSNSLP INVITE request in an SLP message, a different issue than CVE-2010-0013.
This issue was addressed for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 and 5 via https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2010-0115.html
We currently have no plans to fix this flaw in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 as the MSN protocol support in the provided version of Pidgin (1.5.1) is out-dated and no longer supported by MSN servers. There are no plans to backport MSN protocol changes for that version of Pidgin.
