My apologies I didn't read (yes I know) thoroughly the requirements


Platform: Win 7 64 bit

Pidgin 2.7.10 

Libpurp 2.7.10


I was adding the facebook plugin from googlecode. (its the very first
plugin listed in the plugin download) I was not sure if I should contact
the author or you until I saw how to report security vulnerability post.

I simply clicked on and downloaded the exe plugin

I sent an attached screen shot if you did not get it please let me know


OO you probably would want to know the A/v info too


McAfee version 8.7.0i 

Scan engine 5400.1158

DAT 6265.0000 created feb 22 2011 





Thank you.

Et Al,



I love pidgin, I will be making a donation at some point to you guys.
In addition to being a TME for cloud computing and Dist networking, I
also work with the various security consulting firms. Below I captured
trying to get the facebook plugin.



Heres the response I got:
