XMPP Service STARTTLS Plaintext Command Injection

This script is Copyright (C) 2011-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote instant messaging service allows plaintext command
injection while negotiating an encrypted communications channel.

Description :

The remote XMPP service contains a software flaw in its STARTTLS
implementation that could allow a remote, unauthenticated attacker to
inject commands during the plaintext protocol phase that will be
executed during the ciphertext protocol phase.

Successful exploitation could reveal a user's credentials, allowing an
attacker to impersonate them. This could lead to further attacks
involving social engineering.
