Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: JabberD 2.x: Multiple vulnerabilities (GLSA 201803-07)
Severity: high
Exploitable: local, remote
Date: 2018-03-19
Bug(s): #623806, #629412, #631068
ID: 201803-07


Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in Gentoo's JabberD 2.x
ebuild, the worst of which allows local attackers to escalate privileges.


JabberD 2.x is an open source Jabber server written in C.

Affected Packages

Package: net-im/jabberd2
Vulnerable: <= 2.6.1
Architectures: All supported architectures


Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Gentoo’s JabberD 2.x
ebuild. Please review the referenced CVE identifiers for details.


An attacker could possibly escalate privileges by owning system binaries
in trusted locations, cause a Denial of Service condition by manipulating
the PID file from jabberd2 services, bypass security via SASL ANONYMOUS
connections or have other unspecified impacts.


There is no known workaround at this time.


Gentoo has discontinued support for JabberD 2.x and recommends that
users unmerge the package:
# emerge --unmerge "net-im/jabberd2"
As an alternative, users may want to upgrade their systems to use
net-im/prosody instead of net-im/jabberd2.
