DSA-2169-1 telepathy-gabble -- insufficient input validation

Date Reported:

Affected Packages:
Security database references:
No other external database security references currently available.
More information:

It was discovered that telepathy-gabble, the Jabber/XMPP connection manager for the Telepathy framework, is processing google:jingleinfo updates without validating their origin. This may allow an attacker to trick telepathy-gabble into relaying streamed media data through a server of his choice and thus intercept audio and video calls.

For the oldstable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in version 0.7.6-1+lenny1.

For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in version 0.9.15-1+squeeze1.

For the testing (wheezy) and unstable (sid) distributions, this problem will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you upgrade your telepathy-gabble packages.
