Overview

Mosquitto is an open source implementation of a server for version 3.1 and 3.1.1 of the MQTT protocol.

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Information Exposure. The leakage is due to keeping the mosquitto.db (aka the persistence file) as world readable. Therefore, local users can access sensitive MQTT topic information.
