<p>Gajim is a Jabber/XMPP client which uses GTK+.</p>
<p>The _ssl_verify_callback() function in does not properly
validate SSL certificates, causing any certificate to be accepted as
valid as long as the root CA is valid.
<impact type="low">
<p>A remote attacker might employ a specially crafted certificate to
conduct man-in-the-middle attacks on SSL connections and potentially
disclose sensitive information.
<p>There is no known workaround at this time.</p>
<p>All Gajim users should upgrade to the latest version:</p>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose "&gt;=net-im/gajim-0.15.3-r1"
