Description Guilherme de Almeida Suckevicz 2021-07-23 20:38:42 UTC
In Eclipse Mosquitto version 1.6 to 2.0.10, if an authenticated client that had connected with MQTT v5 sent a crafted CONNECT message to the broker a memory leak would occur, which could be used to provide a DoS attack against the broker.
