Description

The Zoom Client for Meetings (for Android, iOS, Linux, macOS, and Windows) before version 5.10.0 fails to properly parse XML stanzas in XMPP messages. This can allow a malicious user to break out of the current XMPP message context and create a new message context to have the receiving user’s client perform a variety of actions. This issue could be used in a more sophisticated attack to forge XMPP messages from the server.
