Severity: normal

Date: August 14, 2012
Bug(s): #411269, #412215
ID: 201208-04

Synopsis

Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in Gajim, the worst of
which may allow execution of arbitrary code.


Background

Gajim is a Jabber and XMPP client written in PyGTK.

Affected Packages

Package: net-im/gajim
Vulnerable: < 0.15-r1
Unaffected: >= 0.15-r1
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Gajim. Please review
the CVE identifiers referenced below for details.


Impact

A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted link
using Gajim, possibly resulting in execution of arbitrary code with the
privileges of the process or a Denial of Service condition. Furthermore,
a remote attacker could use a specially crafted Jabber ID, possibly
resulting in execution of arbitrary SQL statements.
A local attacker could perform symlink attacks to overwrite arbitrary
files with the privileges of the user running the application.


Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All Gajim users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
      # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-im/gajim-0.15-r1"
