A new report about WebKitGTK+ security was published today:

WebKitGTK+ Hit Hard By Over 100 Security Vulnerabilities

original source: http://webkitgtk.org/security/WSA-2015-0002.html

Pidgin 3.x still loads all of my plugins (e.g. OpenJDK, Wine
Pipelight ...). So we probably have two problems with WebKitGTK+ in
Pidgin 3.0: the security of the library itself and the slightly
insecure usage of this library in Pidgin.
