Pidgin XMPP Protocol Denial of Service Vulnerability

Pidgin is prone to a denial-of-service vulnerability due to a NULL-pointer dereference condition.

An attacker can exploit this issue by constructing and submitting a specially crafted message.

Successful exploits will cause the affected application to crash, effectively denying service to legitimate users. Due to the nature of this issue, remote code execution may be possible; this has not been confirmed.
