Openfire < 3.5.0 ConnectionManagerImpl.java Queue Handling Remote DoS

High Nessus Plugin ID 31855

Synopsis

The remote host contains an application that is prone to a denial of service attack.

Description

The remote host is running Openfire / Wildfire, an instant messaging server supporting the XMPP protocol.

According to its version, the installation of Openfire or Wildfire on the remote host suffers from a denial of service vulnerability that could bring the server down because it has no limit on a client session's send buffer and can not handle clients that fail to read messages.

Solution

Upgrade to Openfire version 3.5.0 or later.
