Re: I'm gaim



Hi Leonard,

I'm referring to blocking inbound traffic while using the vulnerable Gaim. is it still a security hole if you are blocking in bound requests?

Just curious.

Hello Ryan,



Speaking of which, does this Gaim flaw affect all platforms (including Windows)?



Dunno, possibly.




Shouldn't having a firewall be enough?



What's the use of a firewall when you use an instant messenger? How are you going to communicate with the outside world if your firewall blocks the traffic? You could just as well uninstall gaim in that case.

Bye,
Leonard.
