===========================================================
Ubuntu Security Notice USN-139-1	      June 10, 2005
gaim vulnerability
CAN-2005-1269
===========================================================

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 4.10 (Warty Warthog)
Ubuntu 5.04 (Hoary Hedgehog)

The following packages are affected:

gaim

The problem can be corrected by upgrading the affected package to
version 1:1.0.0-1ubuntu1.5 (for Ubuntu 4.10) and 1:1.1.4-1ubuntu4.2
(for Ubuntu 5.04).  In general, a standard system upgrade is
sufficient to effect the necessary changes.

Details follow:

A remote Denial of Service vulnerability was discovered in Gaim. By
initiating a file transfer with a file name containing certain
international characters (like an accented "a"), a remote attacker
could crash the Gaim client of an arbitrary Yahoo IM member.
