Patch  oval:com.redhat.rhsa:def:20121102
RHSA-2012:1102: pidgin security update (Moderate)  

Pidgin is an instant messaging program which can log in to multiple accounts on multiple instant messaging networks simultaneously.
A flaw was found in the way the Pidgin MSN protocol plug-in processed text that was not encoded in UTF-8. A remote attacker could use this flaw to crash Pidgin by sending a specially-crafted MSN message. (CVE-2012-1178)
An input validation flaw was found in the way the Pidgin MSN protocol plug-in handled MSN notification messages. A malicious server or a remote attacker could use this flaw to crash Pidgin by sending a specially-crafted MSN notification message. (CVE-2012-2318)
A buffer overflow flaw was found in the Pidgin MXit protocol plug-in. A remote attacker could use this flaw to crash Pidgin by sending a MXit message containing specially-crafted emoticon tags. (CVE-2012-3374)
Red Hat would like to thank the Pidgin project for reporting the CVE-2012-3374 issue. Upstream acknowledges Ulf Härnhammar as the original reporter of CVE-2012-3374.
All Pidgin users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to resolve these issues. Pidgin must be restarted for this update to take effect.

Quick Help

Unknown Tests
There is a hardcoded maximum limit for number of tests displayed for a definition. For a small number of oval definitions, about ~1% of all, hundreds of test have been defined. This causes the pages to grow in size, exceed even 1mb, and they are unsuitable for display in a web page. So they are not displayed.Please refer to the xml definition files if you really want to view them.
evr_string datatype
Represents epoch, version, and release number as a single version string
