Trillian contains a flaw that may allow a remote denial of service. The issue is triggered when an AIM message is received with certain Mac encoded RTF character codes. The codes are: \'d1 \'d2 \'d3 \'d4 \'d5, and can be accidentally sent by by copying text from an OSX application and pasting it to the victim. The victim's client will close immediately upon receiving such characters.
