Kopete overloads system

Bug #82799 reported by Joel Mulligan on 2007-02-02
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
KDE Network
kdenetwork (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: kopete

If a contact attempts to send the user a large number of files kopete will continue opening "Accept File Transfer?" windows to the point where it begins to use enormous amounts of memory and cpu time. This isnt really a bug more a feature request I guess, there should be some way to stop a malicious contact from attempting to crash your msn session by sending large numbers of files (it ends up fully crashing/hanging kde/the system because kopete handles file transfers differently to the native msn client).
