Jan Wagner uploaded a new package for pidgin which fixed the following security problem: CVE-2010-0277 and Debian Bug #566775 It was discovered that that slp.c in the MSN protocol plugin in libpurple in Pidgin 2.6.4 and Adium 1.3.8 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption) or possibly have unspecified other impact via unknown vectors, a different issue than CVE-2010-0013. CVE-2010-0420 Fixes a remote Finch XMPP crash. CVE-2010-0423 Fixes a remote smiley freeze/CPU pegging DoS. For the sid distribution the problem has been fixed in version 2.6.6-1. Upgrade instructions --------------------- If you don't use pinning (see ) you have to update pidgin manually via "apt-get -t lenny-backports install pidgin". We recommend to pin the backports repository to 200 so that new versions of installed backports will be installed automatically: Package: * Pin: release a=lenny-backports Pin-Priority: 200  <http://backports.org/dokuwiki/doku.php?id=instructions>  http://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/CVE-2010-0277  http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=566775  http://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/CVE-2010-0420  http://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/CVE-2010-0423
