Medium Nessus Plugin ID 72020


The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.


A vulnerability has been discovered and corrected in ejabberd :

The TLS driver in ejabberd before 2.1.12 supports (1) SSLv2 and (2) weak SSL ciphers, which makes it easier for remote attackers to obtain sensitive information via a brute-force attack (CVE-2013-6169).

The updated packages have been upgraded to the 2.1.13 version which is not vulnerable to this issue.


Update the affected ejabberd, ejabberd-devel and / or ejabberd-doc packages.
