Default Pidgin 2.7.11 closes DoS bug

From http://www.h-online.com/security/new...g-1206390.html

Quote:
The Pidgin development team has issued version 2.7.11 of its open source instant messenger application. According to security specialist Secunia, the maintenance and security update corrects a NULL pointer dereference error when processing certain YMSG (Yahoo!/Yahoo! JAPAN messenger) packets that could be used by an attacker to cause a denial-of-service (DoS) condition.
