pidgin 2.5.6 is out with fixes for remote buffer overflows.
Would be really nice to get it in the tree.

Reproducible: Always

CVE-2009-1373 (
  Buffer overflow in the XMPP SOCKS5 bytestream server in Pidgin before
  2.5.6 allows remote authenticated users to execute arbitrary code via
  vectors involving an outbound XMPP file transfer.  NOTE: some of
  these details are obtained from third party information.

CVE-2009-1374 (
  Buffer overflow in the decrypt_out function in Pidgin before 2.5.6
  allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application
  crash) via a QQ packet.

CVE-2009-1375 (
  The PurpleCircBuffer implementation in Pidgin before 2.5.6 does not
  properly maintain a certain buffer, which allows remote attackers to
  cause a denial of service (memory corruption and application crash)
  via vectors involving the (1) XMPP or (2) Sametime protocol.

CVE-2009-1376 (
  Multiple integer overflows in the msn_slplink_process_msg functions
  in the MSN protocol handler in (1) libpurple/protocols/msn/slplink.c
  and (2) libpurple/protocols/msnp9/slplink.c in Pidgin before 2.5.6 on
  32-bit platforms allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via
  a malformed SLP message with a crafted offset value, leading to
  buffer overflows.  NOTE: this issue exists because of an incomplete
  fix for CVE-2008-2927.
