Secunia Google Talk Credentials Disclosure Security Issue

Andrea Micalizzi has discovered a security issue in Google Talk, which can be exploited by malicious people to disclose sensitive information.

The security issue is caused due to the application insecurely processing the data supplied via the "gtalk://" URI and can be exploited to redirect authentication requests in the clear text to an attacker chosen server.

Successful exploitation requires that a localised version is installed without uninstalling the non-localised version.

The security issue is confirmed in version 1.0.5. Other versions may also be affected.

U are really on the wrong thread to talk about Google. Secunia are notifying users of a vulnerability issue.

Version 105 was released in 2007 before Windows 7 hence your message "This version requires Windows 2000, XP or 2003; you have 6.1. Would you like to continue with the installation anyway?"

Just click continue & it will install as U will note here:

http://secunia.com/community/forum/thread/show/127...

I do not use Google products but it looks to me like their download links are out of date - I cannot find a change log for this programme nor am I sure it fully supports Windows 7 because there appears little has been updated since 2007.

U should ask Google Support to comment.

The version that PSI offers to replace 104 with is 105, which by this advisory (SA48448) is vulnerable to the same issue as replacing 104 is supposed to remediate. Secunia needs to update their SPS package or provide a download link to a non-vulnerable version of Google Talk.

If you read through this: http://secunia.com/community/forum/thread/show/127... you will find that the download from Secunia contains an upgrade file for 107.

I recommend reading the original vulnerability report at http://retrogod.altervista.org/9sg_gtalk_uri.html
It seems that US users on 104 are not actually affected.
