ID CVE-2009-2694
Summary The msn_slplink_process_msg function in libpurple/protocols/msn/slplink.c in libpurple, as used in Pidgin (formerly Gaim) before 2.5.9 and Adium 1.3.5 and earlier, allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (memory corruption and application crash) by sending multiple crafted SLP (aka MSNSLP) messages to trigger an overwrite of an arbitrary memory location. NOTE: this issue reportedly exists because of an incomplete fix for CVE-2009-1376.

NOTE: this issue reportedly exists because of an incomplete fix for CVE-2009-1376 (CVE-2009-2694). Unspecified vulnerability in Pidgin 2.6.0 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via a link in a Yahoo IM (CVE-2009-3025) protocols/jabber/auth.c in libpurple in Pidgin 2.6.0, and possibly other versions, does not follow the require TLS/SSL preference when connecting to older Jabber servers that do not follow the XMPP specification, which causes libpurple to connect to the server without the expected encryption and allows remote attackers to sniff sessions (CVE-2009-3026). libpurple/protocols/irc/msgs.c in the IRC protocol plugin in libpurple in Pidgin before 2.6.2 allows remote IRC servers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and application crash) via a TOPIC message that lacks a topic string (CVE-2009-2703). The msn_slp_sip_recv function in libpurple/protocols/msn/slp.c in the MSN protocol plugin in libpurple in Pidgin before 2.6.2 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and application crash) via an SLP invite message that lacks certain required fields, as demonstrated by a malformed message from a KMess client (CVE-2009-3083). The msn_slp_process_msg function in libpurple/protocols/msn/slpcall.c in the MSN protocol plugin in libpurple 2.6.0 and 2.6.1, as used in Pidgin before 2.6.2, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a handwritten (aka Ink) message, related to an uninitialized variable and the incorrect UTF16-LE charset name (CVE-2009-3084). The XMPP protocol plugin in libpurple in Pidgin before 2.6.2 does not properly handle an error IQ stanza during an attempted fetch of a custom smiley, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via XHTML-IM content with cid: images (CVE-2009-3085). This update provides pidgin 2.6.2, which is not vulnerable to these issues.

    description Security vulnerabilities has been identified and fixed in pidgin : The NSS plugin in libpurple in Pidgin 2.4.1 does not verify SSL certificates, which makes it easier for remote attackers to trick a user into accepting an invalid server certificate for a spoofed service. (CVE-2008-3532) Pidgin 2.4.1 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via a long filename that contains certain characters, as demonstrated using an MSN message that triggers the crash in the msn_slplink_process_msg function. (CVE-2008-2955) The UPnP functionality in Pidgin 2.0.0, and possibly other versions, allows remote attackers to trigger the download of arbitrary files and cause a denial of service (memory or disk consumption) via a UDP packet that specifies an arbitrary URL. (CVE-2008-2957) Buffer overflow in the XMPP SOCKS5 bytestream server in Pidgin (formerly Gaim) before 2.5.6 allows remote authenticated users to execute arbitrary code via vectors involving an outbound XMPP file transfer. NOTE: some of these details are obtained from third-party information (CVE-2009-1373). Buffer overflow in the decrypt_out function in Pidgin (formerly Gaim) before 2.5.6 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a QQ packet (CVE-2009-1374). The PurpleCircBuffer implementation in Pidgin (formerly Gaim) before 2.5.6 does not properly maintain a certain buffer, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and application crash) via vectors involving the (1) XMPP or (2) Sametime protocol (CVE-2009-1375). Multiple integer overflows in the msn_slplink_process_msg functions in the MSN protocol handler in (1) libpurple/protocols/msn/slplink.c and (2) libpurple/protocols/msnp9/slplink.c in Pidgin (formerly Gaim) before 2.5.6 on 32-bit platforms allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a malformed SLP message with a crafted offset value, leading to buffer overflows. NOTE: this issue exists because of an incomplete fix for CVE-2008-2927 (CVE-2009-1376). The OSCAR protocol implementation in Pidgin before 2.5.8 misinterprets the ICQWebMessage message type as the ICQSMS message type, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a crafted ICQ web message that triggers allocation of a large amount of memory (CVE-2009-1889). The msn_slplink_process_msg function in libpurple/protocols/msn/slplink.c in libpurple, as used in Pidgin (formerly Gaim) before 2.5.9 and Adium 1.3.5 and earlier, allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (memory corruption and application crash) by sending multiple crafted SLP (aka MSNSLP) messages to trigger an overwrite of an arbitrary memory location. NOTE: this issue reportedly exists because of an incomplete fix for CVE-2009-1376 (CVE-2009-2694).

    description Updated pidgin packages that fix several security issues are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 and 5. This update has been rated as having important security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team. Pidgin is an instant messaging program which can log in to multiple accounts on multiple instant messaging networks simultaneously. A buffer overflow flaw was found in the way Pidgin initiates file transfers when using the Extensible Messaging and Presence Protocol (XMPP). If a Pidgin client initiates a file transfer, and the remote target sends a malformed response, it could cause Pidgin to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the permissions of the user running Pidgin. This flaw only affects accounts using XMPP, such as Jabber and Google Talk. (CVE-2009-1373) A denial of service flaw was found in Pidgin's QQ protocol decryption handler. When the QQ protocol decrypts packet information, heap data can be overwritten, possibly causing Pidgin to crash. (CVE-2009-1374) A flaw was found in the way Pidgin's PurpleCircBuffer object is expanded. If the buffer is full when more data arrives, the data stored in this buffer becomes corrupted. This corrupted data could result in confusing or misleading data being presented to the user, or possibly crash Pidgin. (CVE-2009-1375) It was discovered that on 32-bit platforms, the Red Hat Security Advisory RHSA-2008:0584 provided an incomplete fix for the integer overflow flaw affecting Pidgin's MSN protocol handler. If a Pidgin client receives a specially crafted MSN message, it may be possible to execute arbitrary code with the permissions of the user running Pidgin. (CVE-2009-1376) Note: By default, when using an MSN account, only users on your buddy list can send you messages. This prevents arbitrary MSN users from exploiting this flaw. All Pidgin users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to resolve these issues. Pidgin must be restarted for this update to take effect.

    description Updated pidgin packages that fix a security issue are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3, 4, and 5. This update has been rated as having critical security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team. Pidgin is an instant messaging program which can log in to multiple accounts on multiple instant messaging networks simultaneously. Federico Muttis of Core Security Technologies discovered a flaw in Pidgin's MSN protocol handler. If a user received a malicious MSN message, it was possible to execute arbitrary code with the permissions of the user running Pidgin. (CVE-2009-2694) Note: Users can change their privacy settings to only allow messages from users on their buddy list to limit the impact of this flaw. These packages upgrade Pidgin to version 2.5.9. Refer to the Pidgin release notes for a full list of changes: http://developer.pidgin.im/wiki/ChangeLog All Pidgin users should upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve this issue. Pidgin must be restarted for this update to take effect.

    description The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200910-02 (Pidgin: Multiple vulnerabilities) Multiple vulnerabilities were found in Pidgin: Yuriy Kaminskiy reported that the OSCAR protocol implementation in Pidgin misinterprets the ICQWebMessage message type as the ICQSMS message type, triggering an allocation of a large amount of memory (CVE-2009-1889). Federico Muttis of Core Security Technologies reported that the msn_slplink_process_msg() function in libpurple/protocols/msn/slplink.c in libpurple as used in Pidgin doesn't properly process incoming SLP messages, triggering an overwrite of an arbitrary memory location (CVE-2009-2694). NOTE: This issue reportedly exists because of an incomplete fix for CVE-2009-1376 (GLSA 200905-07). bugdave reported that protocols/jabber/auth.c in libpurple as used in Pidgin does not follow the 'require TSL/SSL' preference when connecting to older Jabber servers that do not follow the XMPP specification, resulting in a connection to the server without the expected encryption (CVE-2009-3026). Impact : A remote attacker could send specially crafted SLP (via MSN) or ICQ web messages, possibly leading to execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Pidgin, unauthorized information disclosure, or a Denial of Service. Workaround : There is no known workaround at this time.

    description It was discovered that Pidgin did not properly handle certain topic messages in the IRC protocol handler. If a user were tricked into connecting to a malicious IRC server, an attacker could cause Pidgin to crash, leading to a denial of service. This issue only affected Ubuntu 8.04 LTS, Ubuntu 8.10 and Ubuntu 9.04. (CVE-2009-2703) It was discovered that Pidgin did not properly enforce the 'require TLS/SSL' setting when connecting to certain older Jabber servers. If a remote attacker were able to perform a man-in-the-middle attack, this flaw could be exploited to view sensitive information. This issue only affected Ubuntu 8.04 LTS, Ubuntu 8.10 and Ubuntu 9.04. (CVE-2009-3026) It was discovered that Pidgin did not properly handle certain SLP invite messages in the MSN protocol handler. A remote attacker could send a specially crafted invite message and cause Pidgin to crash, leading to a denial of service. This issue only affected Ubuntu 8.04 LTS, Ubuntu 8.10 and Ubuntu 9.04. (CVE-2009-3083) It was discovered that Pidgin did not properly handle certain errors in the XMPP protocol handler. A remote attacker could send a specially crafted message and cause Pidgin to crash, leading to a denial of service. This issue only affected Ubuntu 8.10 and Ubuntu 9.04. (CVE-2009-3085) It was discovered that Pidgin did not properly handle malformed contact-list data in the OSCAR protocol handler. A remote attacker could send specially crafted contact-list data and cause Pidgin to crash, leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2009-3615) It was discovered that Pidgin did not properly handle custom smiley requests in the MSN protocol handler.

  • NASL family Oracle Linux Local Security Checks
    NASL id ORACLELINUX_ELSA-2009-1060.NASL
    description From Red Hat Security Advisory 2009:1060 : Updated pidgin packages that fix several security issues are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 and 5. This update has been rated as having important security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team. Pidgin is an instant messaging program which can log in to multiple accounts on multiple instant messaging networks simultaneously. A buffer overflow flaw was found in the way Pidgin initiates file transfers when using the Extensible Messaging and Presence Protocol (XMPP). If a Pidgin client initiates a file transfer, and the remote target sends a malformed response, it could cause Pidgin to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the permissions of the user running Pidgin. This flaw only affects accounts using XMPP, such as Jabber and Google Talk. (CVE-2009-1373) A denial of service flaw was found in Pidgin's QQ protocol decryption handler. When the QQ protocol decrypts packet information, heap data can be overwritten, possibly causing Pidgin to crash. (CVE-2009-1374) A flaw was found in the way Pidgin's PurpleCircBuffer object is expanded. If the buffer is full when more data arrives, the data stored in this buffer becomes corrupted. This corrupted data could result in confusing or misleading data being presented to the user, or possibly crash Pidgin. (CVE-2009-1375) It was discovered that on 32-bit platforms, the Red Hat Security Advisory RHSA-2008:0584 provided an incomplete fix for the integer overflow flaw affecting Pidgin's MSN protocol handler. If a Pidgin client receives a specially crafted MSN message, it may be possible to execute arbitrary code with the permissions of the user running Pidgin. (CVE-2009-1376) Note: By default, when using an MSN account, only users on your buddy list can send you messages. This prevents arbitrary MSN users from exploiting this flaw. All Pidgin users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to resolve these issues. Pidgin must be restarted for this update to take effect.

    description The version of Pidgin installed on the remote host is earlier than 2.5.9. Such versions are reportedly affected by a vulnerability in 'msn_slplink_process_msg()'. Maliciously crafted MSN SLP messages can result in memory corruption. A remote attacker could use this to crash the client, or execute arbitrary code. This attack does not require user interaction or that the attacker is in the victim's buddy list (using the default configuration).

    NASL id DEBIAN_DSA-1870.NASL
    description Federico Muttis discovered that libpurple, the shared library that adds support for various instant messaging networks to the pidgin IM client, is vulnerable to a heap-based buffer overflow. This issue exists because of an incomplete fix for CVE-2008-2927 and CVE-2009-1376. An attacker can exploit this by sending two consecutive SLP packets to a victim via MSN. The first packet is used to create an SLP message object with an offset of zero, the second packet then contains a crafted offset which hits the vulnerable code originally fixed in CVE-2008-2927 and CVE-2009-1376 and allows an attacker to execute arbitrary code. Note: Users with the 'Allow only the users below' setting are not vulnerable to this attack. If you can't install the below updates you may want to set this via Tools->Privacy.
