Pidgin-OTR 3.2.1-2 Plugin (encryption for Pidgin) Released
Submitted by John T. Haller on August 28, 2012 - 6:41pm
A security update to the Pidgin-OTR plugin for Pidgin Portable has been released. We don't normally announce plugin updates on the homepage and RSS, but as this is a rather important security update fixing a possible remote code execution bug in the plugin, we decided we wanted to be sure our users know. The updated plugin is available from the Pidgin Portable homepage. Just install it over your current install to update. All users who use Pidgin-OTR should upgrade immediately. Users of local versions of Pidgin can update from the Pidgin-OTR homepage. Users who do not use the plugin (which is not included in local Pidgin or Pidgin Portable by default) are not affected and do not need to update anything.
Note that an earlier release announcement of this was still showing a link to the previous version. The updated version should now show for all users. We apologize for any confusion.
