Red Hat Security Advisory 2012-1538-01 - This package provides jabberd 2, an Extensible Messaging and Presence Protocol server used for XML based communication. It was discovered that the XMPP Dialback protocol implementation in jabberd 2 did not properly validate Verify Response and Authorization Response messages. A remote attacker able to connect to the jabberd's server-to-server communication port could possibly use this flaw to spoof source domains of the XMPP messages. Users of Red Hat Network Satellite 5.5 are advised to upgrade to this updated jabberd package, which resolves this issue. For this update to take effect, Red Hat Network Satellite must be restarted.
