I. The Vulnerability

Trillian does not check SSL certificate before sending MSN user
credentials. An attacker is able to obtain MSN username and password
with a spoofed certificate and no alert is generated to the user.
This vulnerability was found in Trillian Basic 3.1. Other versions
and/or protocols may also be affected.
