Zimbra Collaboration Joule 8.8.15 Patch 41 GA Release

Release Date: July 26, 2023

Check out the Security Fixes, What's New, Fixed Issues, and Known Issues for this version of Zimbra Collaboration. Please refer to the Patch Installation steps for Patch Installation instructions. As always, you are encouraged to tell us what you think in the Forums or open a support ticket to report issues.

NOTE: If you are upgrading or migrating from an older version of Zimbra to Zimbra 8.8 Production Ready, please read Things to Know Before Upgrading and First Steps with the Zimbra NG Modules for critical information before you upgrade.

IMPORTANT: To install LDAP component standalone

The ZCS installer script has been updated to fix an issue related to deploying the certificate when installing the LDAP component. If you are planning to do a fresh install on a new server, please download the latest installer tar from the Zimbra Downloads page.

IMPORTANT: Zimbra OpenSSL with default FIPS Configuration

  • Please be advised that, TLS 1.2 is the minimum supported version if FIPS is being used with OpenSSL 3.0. We recommend using Zimbra with strong TLS configuration for increased security. Please follow instructions in Cipher-suites-wiki to set correct ciphers as per current versions of openssl, nginx and postfix.
  • From this patch going forward Zimbra OpenSSL will be configured to work with FIPS compliance enabled by default. You do not need to take any action, unless you run into issues, you can switch to the non-FIPS provider as follows:
  • Run the below commands to Enable/Disable FIPS providers on all servers.

Disable FIPS provider:

As root user run below commands
Take backup of openssl.cnf cd /opt/zimbra/common/etc/ssl cp openssl.cnf <backup-path>/openssl.cnf
Copy openssl-source.cnf file cd /opt/zimbra/common/etc/ssl cp openssl-source.cnf openssl.cnf
Verify that, FIPS provider is disabled: Run below command and verify fips provider is not listed /opt/zimbra/common/bin/openssl list --providers
As zimbra user run below commands su - zimbra zmcontrol restart

Enable FIPS provider:

As root user run below commands
Take backup of openssl.cnf cd /opt/zimbra/common/etc/ssl cp openssl.cnf <backup-path>/openssl.cnf
Copy openssl-fips.cnf file cd /opt/zimbra/common/etc/ssl cp openssl-fips.cnf openssl.cnf
Verify that, FIPS provider is enabled: Run below command and verify fips provider is listed /opt/zimbra/common/bin/openssl list --providers
As zimbra user run below commands su - zimbra zmcontrol restart

  • From Kepler-Patch-25 onwards, customers using SSO will need to update zimbraVirtualHostName attribute for the domains. Please refer to the instructions to update the attribute.
  • With JDK 17, weaker Kerberos encryption types like 3DES and RC4 have now been disabled by default. This can cause SPNEGO auth to fail if described encryption types are being used. We recommend using stronger encryption types like AES256.

To get SPNEGO auth working with weak encryption types, weak encryption can be enabled by setting the allow_weak_crypto property to true in the krb5.conf configuration file. Please follow below instructions:

1. In /opt/zimbra/jetty_base/etc/krb5.ini.in -> [libdefaults] section, set allow_weak_crypto = true

2. Restart mailboxd service:

su - zimbra
zmmailboxdctl restart
