### Description
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. This was originally reported in [CVE-2011-3185]({{< ref "cve-2011-3185-00" >}}) in 2011
and we attempted to fix it then, but failed.
### Mitigation
Don't attempt to execute files when the user clicks a file:// URI. Instead, open
a file browser at the file's location.
