[slackware-security]  pidgin (SSA:2012-195-02)

New pidgin packages are available for Slackware 12.2, 13.0, 13.1, 13.37,
and -current to fix security issues.


Here are the details from the Slackware 13.37 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/pidgin-2.10.6-i486-1_slack13.37.txz:  Upgraded.
  Fixes a security issue for users of MXit:  Incorrect handing of inline
  images in incoming instant messages can cause a buffer overflow and in
  some cases can be exploited to execute arbitrary code.
  For more information, see:
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2012-3374
  (* Security fix *)
