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