Summary XMPP may not enforce TLS
Date 2009-09-03
CVE Number CVE-2009-3026
Discovered By bugdave in ticket
Fixed In Release 2.6.0


The XMPP protocol plugin can be tricked into establishing an insecure connection by a malicious man in the middle by causing libpurple to use the older IQ-based login and then not offering TLS/SSL. The “require TLS/SSL” option was introduced in 2.2.0.


Respect the “require TLS/SSL” preference for this type of connection.
