Trillian aim.dll aim:// buffer overflow
|trillian-aim-bo (35447)||High Risk|
Trillian is vulnerable to a buffer overflow in the aim.dll plugin. By persuading a victim to open a specially-crafted aim:// URI inside a Web browser, a remote attacker could overflow a buffer and execute arbitrary code on the system with the privileges of the victim, once the malicious URI is passed to the Trillian Instant Messenger client.
