Trillian IM Needs Patching To Stay Secure

May 22, 2008 (Computerworld) Security researchers today warned users of the popular Trillian instant messaging client that the software harbors three critical vulnerabilities that could be used to hijack their Windows PCs.

Trillian's developer, Cerulean Studios, has updated the IM client to Version 3.0.10.0 to patch the bugs.


The vulnerabilities were reported by 3Com's TippingPoint, which posted advisories for each. Danish bug tracking firm Secunia Inc., meanwhile, collectively ranked the three as "highly critical" problems, its second-highest threat rating.
