Pidgin 'process_chunked_data()' Function Heap Buffer Overflow Vulnerability

Pidgin is prone to a heap-based buffer-overflow vulnerability because it fails to perform adequate boundary checks on user-supplied input.

Attackers may leverage this issue to execute arbitrary code in the context of the application. Failed attacks will cause denial-of-service conditions.

Pidgin 2.10.7 is vulnerable; other versions may also be affected.
