|Summary||Smiley denial of service|
|Discovered By||Antti Hayrynen|
|Fixed In Release||2.6.6|
oCERT notified us about a problem in Pidgin, where a large amount of processing time will be used when inserting many smileys into an IM or chat window. This should not cause a crash, but Pidgin can become unusably slow.
A limit was added for the maximum number of smileys allowed in a conversation.
