+summary: MSN Remote file transfer filename DoS
+discoveredBy: Juan Pablo Lopez Yacubian
+fixedInRelease: 2.4.3
+type: security
+layout: cve
+hidden: true
+---
+
+### Description
+
+A remote MSN user can cause a denial of service (crash) by sending a file with a file with a filename containing invalid characters. The local user must then accept the file transfer to trigger a double-free.
+
+### Mitigation
+
+A fix was applied to ensure that the double-free didn't occur.

+discoveredBy: Andrew Hunt and Christian Grothoff
+fixedInRelease: 2.5.0
+type: security
+layout: cve
+hidden: true
+---
+
+### Description
+
+The UPnP functionality in libpurple allows remote attackers to trigger the download of arbitrary files and cause a denial of service (memory or disk consumption) via a UDP packet that specifies an arbitrary URL.
+
+### Mitigation
+
+UPnP related downloads are limited to 128kB.

+summary: NSS TLS/SSL Certificates not validated
+discoveredBy: Josh Triplett
+fixedInRelease: 2.5.0
+type: security
+layout: cve
+hidden: true
+---
+
+### Description
+
+The NSS SSL implementation in libpurple does not verify SSL certificates, which makes it easier for remote attackers to trick a user into accepting an invalid server certificate for a spoofed service.
+
+### Mitigation
+
+SSL/TLS Certificates are now verified in the NSS implementation in libpurple.
