summary: MSN SLP DOS (malloc error)

### Description
Remote crash. Gaim allocates a buffer for the payload of each message received
based on the size field in the header of the message. A malicious peer could
specify an invalid size that exceeds the amount of available memory.
### Mitigation
Replace call to `g_malloc()` with call to `g_try_malloc()`. If the memory could
not be allocated the function returns instead of causing the application to
crash.
