Date Reported:
01 Apr 2017
Affected Packages:
Security database references:
In the Debian bugtracking system: Bug 767521, Bug 767535.
In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2014-8760.
More information:

It was found that ejabberd does not enforce the starttls_required setting when compression is used, which causes clients to establish connections without encryption.

For Debian 7 Wheezy, this problem has been fixed in version 2.1.10-4+deb7u2.

This update also disables the insecure SSLv3.

We recommend that you upgrade your ejabberd packages.
