### Description
It was discovered that libpurple 2.7.6 through 2.7.8 did not properly handle
"short" packets in MSN direct connection sessions, leading to a crash due to a
NULL pointer dereference. Malicious clients or users can exploit this to cause a
denial of service (crash).
### Mitigation
Ignore short packets.
