Bamboo used an old version of the Smack XMPP library that deserialises messages received from XMPP. Attackers can use this vulnerability to execute Java code of their choice on systems that have a vulnerable version of Bamboo if a XMPP connection has been configured. To exploit this issue, Bamboo attackers need to be able to modify XMPP messages destined to Bamboo from a configured XMPP server.
