Openfire (formerly Wildfire) is a Java implementation of a complete
Jabber server.
Openfire's connection manager in the file
cannot handle clients that fail to read messages, and has no limit on
their session's send buffer.
<impact type="normal">
Remote authenticated attackers could trigger large outgoing queues
without reading messages, causing a Denial of Service.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Openfire users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=net-im/openfire-3.5.0&quot;</code>
