Package        : gajim
Vulnerability  : several
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE IDs        : CVE-2012-2093 CVE-2012-2086 CVE-2012-2085
Debian bug     : 668038

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in gajim, a feature-rich
jabber client.  The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
identifies the following problems:


    gajim is not properly sanitizing input before passing it to shell
    commands.  An attacker can use this flaw to execute arbitrary code
    on behalf of the victim if the user e.g. clicks on a specially crafted
    URL in an instant message.


    gajim is using predictable temporary files in an insecure manner when
    converting instant messages containing LaTeX to images.  A local
    attacker can use this flaw to conduct symlink attacks and overwrite
    files the victim has write access to.


    gajim is not properly sanitizing input when logging conversations
    which results in the possibility to conduct SQL injection attacks.

For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
version 0.13.4-3+squeeze2.

For the testing distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
version 0.15-1.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 0.15-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your gajim packages.
