Red Hat Product Errata RHSA-2008:0584 normal SHIPPED_LIVE Important: pidgin security and bug fix update 2008-07-09 08:35:26 UTC

Description Warren Togami 2008-07-02 13:30:26 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #453634 +++

Tuesday July 1st, 2008 ICQ changed their server in such a way that broke logins
from the client identifier that pidgin used.
A very simple patch fixes this.  It has to be backported for the older pidgin
versions in RHEL but it is simple.

We are going to include this in a pending security advisory.  I'm adding the
4.6.z flag.
