1. Summary:

An updated jabberd package that fixes one security issue is now available
for Red Hat Network Satellite 5.5 for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and 6.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having low
security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score,

the References section.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Network Satellite Server 5.5 (RHEL v.5) - s390x, x86_64

3. Description:

This package provides jabberd 2, an Extensible Messaging and Presence
Protocol (XMPP) 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. (CVE-2012-3525)
