Debian Security Advisory DSA-3492-2                   security@debian.org

Package        : gajim
Debian Bug     : 816158

The wheezy part of the previous gajim update, DSA-3492-1, was
incorrectly built resulting in an unsatisfiable dependency. This update
corrects that problem. For reference, the original advisory text
follows.

Daniel Gultsch discovered a vulnerability in Gajim, an XMPP/jabber
client. Gajim didn't verify the origin of roster update, allowing an
attacker to spoof them and potentially allowing her to intercept
messages.

For the oldstable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed
in version 0.15.1-4.1+deb7u2.

We recommend that you upgrade your gajim packages.
