FreeBSD : jabberd -- remote buffer overflow vulnerability (553224e7-4325-11d9-a3d5-000c6e8f12ef)

High Nessus Plugin ID 18936


The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.


Caused by improper bounds-checking of username and password in the C2S module, it is possible for an attacker to cause a remote buffer overflow. The server directly handles the userinput with SQL backend functions - malicious input may lead to buffer overflow.


Update the affected package.
