Synopsis
=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D

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

Background
=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D

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

Affected packages
=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D

——————————————————————-
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
——————————————————————-
1 net-im/jabberd2 <=3D 2.6.1 Vulnerable!
——————————————————————-
NOTE: Certain packages are still vulnerable. Users should migrate
to another package if one is available or wait for the
existing packages to be marked stable by their
architecture maintainers.

Description
=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D

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

Impact
=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D

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.

Workaround
=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D

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.
