Trillian MSN protocol buffer overflow
|trillian-msn-protocol-bo (42576)||High Risk|
Trillian is vulnerable to a stack-based buffer overflow, caused by improper bounds checking by the MSN protocol. By sending a specially-crafted X-MMS-IM-FORMAT header, a remote attacker could overflow a buffer and execute arbitrary code on the system with privileges of the victim or cause the application to crash.
Upgrade to the latest version of Trillian (126.96.36.199 or later), available from the Cerulean Studios Web site. See References.
