I’ve been planning an upgrade to the server. It is currently running an old version of ejabberd and I’ve been wanting to upgrade to allow for a number of reasons such as better security and improved connection for people using mobile devices

With the recent vulnerability in SSLv3 (POODLE attacks) I’m currently lookint into disabling SSLv3. This shouldn’t effect anything but really old clients.

Service problems

The server went down over night last night and the service provider took a while before they could find the problem. They have now fixed the problem and all services should be running as normal again.

“Heartbleed” SSL bug

Jabber.org.uk was not affected by this bug. We are using an older version of the OpenSSL library which did not have this bug.

SSL certificate changes

[Update 04/01/2014] Have switched over to new certificates. You should not get any errors about “self-signed certificates” any more and there should be no further interruptions of service.

I’m replacing the SSL certificates on both jabber.org.uk and xmpp.org.uk. This is to replace old self-signed certificate with certificates from a CA (Certificate Authority). It should eliminate any problems with self-signed certificates and increase your security of the service.  This may cause some interruptions but hopefully all should switch over without too much problem.
