    CVE ID         : CVE-2016-9877
    Debian Bug     : 849849
    
    It was discovered that RabbitMQ, an implementation of the AMQP
    protocol, didn't correctly validate MQTT (MQ Telemetry Transport)
    connection authentication. This allowed anyone to login to an existing
    user account without having to provide a password.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.3.5-1.1+deb8u1.
    
    For the testing (stretch) and unstable (sid) distributions, this
    problem has been fixed in version 3.6.6-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your rabbitmq-server packages.
