Security flaws

This is a bit of a laugh.

Security is a big problem, this site makes a bit of a joke out of the fact there are large flaws in browsers:

It will read your browsing history and tell you what your sex is. Very cleverly done. It got 100% male for me.

Head branch with MSNP15 fix

As a user asked me to test a patch in Trac I thought I would give an update.

This build is of the HEAD branch, it is a work in progress and I am sure the Pidgin developers would be very unhappy if you submitted bugs about it. Please don't.

The patch applied to head was from this ticket:
http://developer.pidgin.im/ticket/6370

Thanks go to Bob Baggins for letting me know of the problem and patch. This is untested by me as my eyes are already red. Reports of success or failure are appreciated.
