XMPP Standards Foundation reports:

Some implementations of the XMPP Server Dialback protocol (RFC 3920/XEP-0220) have not been checking dialback responses to ensure that validated results are correlated with requests.

An attacking server could spoof one or more domains in communicating with a vulnerable server implementation, thereby avoiding the protections built into the Server Dialback protocol.
