Description Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2013-05-30 19:09:41 UTC

And ChangeLog:
This release fixes a man-in-the-middle attack. You should upgrade.

If you use an unencrypted connection to a "legacy Jabber" (pre-XMPP)
server, this version of Gabble will not connect until you make
one of these configuration changes:

• upgrade the server software to something that supports XMPP 1.0; or
• use an encrypted "old SSL" connection, typically on port 5223
  (old-ssl); or
• turn off "Encryption required (TLS/SSL)" (require-encryption)


• fd.o #65036 (CVE-2013-1431): update Wocky to respect the tls-required
  flag on legacy Jabber servers (Simon)

• fd.o #63119: improve regression tests' isolation from the session bus

I have just bumped it and I think we can stabilize that version if needed 

Reproducible: Always

CVE-2013-1431 (
  The Wocky module in Telepathy Gabble before 0.16.6 and 0.17.x before 0.17.4,
  when connecting to a "legacy Jabber server," does not properly enforce the
  WockyConnector:tls-required flag, which allows remote attackers to bypass
  TLS verification and perform a man-in-the-middle attacks.
