MUC Affiliation Changes

Hi all,

I am coming across a rather strange bug whilst using the MUC aspect of Openfire. For some reason users with the affiliation of admin or owner (moderators) are able to change the affiliations of other admins and owners in the same room. This means that moderators are able to demod/ban anyone including themselves! My current solution is to use a packet filter to stop this from happening but surely it should not be allowed by default?

I am using Openfire 3.9.1 running on Mac OS X 10.9.1



How would you suggest removing a room admin if other room admins were not permitted to do it?


I would have thought that only room owners should be permitted to add and remove admins. Also that admins should never be allowed to add and remove room owners, otherwise things could get out of hand pretty fast!

As yes, that would be against XEP-0045 , filed OF-747 to check into it.

Thanks Daryl,
