Description

gtkimhtml.c in Pidgin before 2.10.8 does not properly interact with underlying library support for wide Pango layouts, which allows user-assisted remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a long URL that is examined with a tooltip.

Solution(s)

  • alpine-linux-upgrade-pidgin

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
