Multiple vulnerabilities have been reported by Andreas Kurtz:
A remote attacker could execute arbitrary code on clients' systems by uploading a specially crafted plugin, bypassing authentication.

Depending on the server's configuration the attacker might also execute code on the server via an SQL injection.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Openfire users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-im/openfire-3.6.3"
