Fedora 18 : telepathy-gabble-0.16.6-1.fc18 (2013-9794)

Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

This release fixes a man-in-the-middle attack.

If you use an unencrypted connection to a 'legacy Jabber' (pre-XMPP)
server, this version of Gabble will not connect until you make one of
these configuration changes :

- upgrade the server software to something that supports
XMPP 1.0; or

- use an encrypted 'old SSL' connection, typically on
port 5223 (old-ssl); or

- turn off 'Encryption required (TLS/SSL)'
(require-encryption)

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
