#16292 new patch

Pidgin-IRC leaks (OS) user name

Reported by: belmyst Owned by: elb
Milestone: Patches Needing Review Component: IRC
Version: 2.10.9 Keywords: irc user name


At, it was reported that Pidgin leaked:

  • The OS's user name (used in realname by default)
  • Usage of libpurple on identname

The attached patch fixes the above by reusing the user name, instead of using g_get_user_name() or IRC_DEFAULT_ALIAS.
