Description

The Wocky module in Telepathy Gabble before 0.16.6 and 0.17.x before 0.17.4, when connecting to a "legacy Jabber server," does not properly enforce the WockyConnector:tls-required flag, which allows remote attackers to bypass TLS verification and perform a man-in-the-middle attacks.

Solution(s)

  • suse-upgrade-telepathy-gabble
  • suse-upgrade-telepathy-gabble-xmpp-console

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
