Description

The generate_dialback function in the mod_dialback module in Prosody before 0.9.10 does not properly separate fields when generating dialback keys, which allows remote attackers to spoof XMPP network domains via a crafted stream id and domain name that is included in the target domain as a suffix.

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
