Pidgin NSS plugin SSL Certificate Validation Security Bypass Vulnerability

Pidgin is prone to a security-bypass vulnerability because the application fails to properly validate SSL certificates from a server.

Successfully exploiting this issue allows attackers to perform man-in-the-middle attacks or impersonate trusted servers. This will aid in further attacks.

Pidgin 2.4.3 is vulnerable; other versions may also be affected.
