Oracle Solaris Third-Party Patch Update : ejabberd (cve_2013_6169_cryptographic_issues)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 80601


The remote Solaris system is missing a security patch for third-party software.


The remote Solaris system is missing necessary patches to address security updates :

- The mod_pubsub module (mod_pubsub.erl) in ejabberd 2.1.8 and 3.0.0-alpha-3 allows remote authenticated users to cause a denial of service (infinite loop) via a stanza with a publish tag that lacks a node attribute.

- 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)


Upgrade to Solaris 11.2.
