Description Guilherme de Almeida Suckevicz 2021-05-13 17:14:09 UTC
It was discovered that Prosody does not disable SSL/TLS renegotiation, even though this is not used in XMPP. A malicious client may flood a connection with renegotiation requests to consume excessive CPU resources on the server.
Support for disabling renegotiation depends on OpenSSL 1.1.1+ and LuaSec 0.7+.

The default configuration is susceptible to this issue.
