SSD for the Jabber server

Nikolaus Polak's picture

Today we will replace one harddisk with a SSD on the Jabber server, following by a big OS upgrade.
We will try to keep the downtimes low, currently planned are following times when the Jabber service isn't reachable:
11:00-12:30 CEST
14:00-15:00 CEST
see below...
We hope that we'll have this completely finished at about 16:00 CEST (including ICQ/MSN/...-transports which have lower priority).
If anything takes more or less time we'll update this article and/or the status-page.

XMPP/Jabber Webclient enabled

I searched years for it: a webchat client for Jabber/XMPP, which is mostly secure and comfortable to use: Converse.js.
On our website in the bottom right corner there is now a "toggle chat"-button, when clicked existing users (@linuxlovers.at, @0nl1ne.at or @jabber.linuxlovers.at) can login:

Jabbim.cz hacked - what now?

Nikolaus Polak's picture

It seems that one other Jabber/XMPP-Server suffered user logindata from an SQL injection attack: http://pinky.jabb.im/2014/12/jabbim-bezpecnostni-problem-security.html

This method wouldn't work on our server, because the Jabber/XMPP database is here MNESIA (not MySQL, even when that's the point our last update try failed) and the webserver on the same virtual machine hasn't a module to connect to it (and there are some more protecting layers - even our transports to other networks aren't on the same machine).
