Package : prosody CVE ID : CVE-2018-10847 Debian Bug : 900524

It was discovered that Prosody, a lightweight Jabber/XMPP server, does not properly validate client-provided parameters during XMPP stream restarts, allowing authenticated users to override the realm associated with their session, potentially bypassing security policies and allowing impersonation.

For the oldstable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in version 0.9.7-2+deb8u4.
