Sorry, I should have sent that first. When using the curses interface
of aptitude it shows this before the package description of pidgin:
WARNING: This version of pidgin is from an untrusted source! Installing this
package could allow a malicious individual to damage or take control
of your system.
That warning only shows on a few packages, and it only appears to be
some of the security releases.
The ouput of 'apt-cache policy pidgin' is:
500 http://security.debian.org/ wheezy/updates/main amd64 Packages
500 http://debian.osuosl.org/debian/ wheezy/main amd64 Packages
I also should have mentioned that I am using Wheezy and have nothing
pinned. The lines from apt-sources are:
deb http://debian.osuosl.org/debian/ wheezy main contrib non-free
deb http://security.debian.org/ wheezy/updates main contrib non-free
deb http://debian.osuosl.org/debian/ wheezy-updates main contrib non-free
deb http://archive.zfsonlinux.org/debian wheezy main
I just now told aptitude to do an update, and it appears that all of
those have disappeared now! Maybe I had gotten a bad update the last
time I had updated.
Sorry for the false alarm and thanks for the reply.
