summary: Pidgin uses clickable links to untrusted executables
discoveredBy: James Burton, Insomnia Security
If a user clicks on a file:// URI in a received IM in Windows builds of Pidgin,
Pidgin attempts to execute the file. This can be dangerous if the file:// URI is
a path on a network share.
Don't attempt to execute files when the user clicks a file:// URI. Instead, open
a file browser at the file's location.
