Package : pidgin-otr
CVE ID : CVE-2015-8833

Stefan Sperling discovered that pidgin-otr, a Pidgin plugin
implementing Off-The-Record messaging, contained a use-after-free
bug. This could be used by a malicious remote user to intentionally
crash the application, thus causing a denial-of-service.

For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
version 4.0.1-1+deb8u1.

For the testing (stretch) and unstable (sid) distributions, this
problem has been fixed in version 4.0.2-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your pidgin-otr packages.
