How to fix?

Upgrade org.igniterealtime.smack:smack-core to version 4.0.0-rc1 or higher.

Overview

org.igniterealtime.smack:smack-core is a modular and portable open source XMPP client library written in Java for Android and Java (SE) VMs.

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Man-in-the-Middle (MitM). The ServerTrustManager component does not verify basicConstraints and nameConstraints in X.509 certificate chains from SSL servers, which allows man-in-the-middle attackers to spoof servers and obtain sensitive information via a crafted certificate chain.
