Apache Activemq 5.1.0 Cross Site Scripting Obtain Information Vulnerability
24 Oct. 2016
The administration web console in Apache ActiveMQ 5.x before 5.11.4, 5.12.x before 5.12.3, and 5.13.x before 5.13.2 allows remote authenticated users to conduct cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks and consequently obtain sensitive information from a Java memory dump via vectors related to creating a queue.
Several instances of cross-site scripting vulnerabilities were identified to be present in the web based administration console as well as the ability to trigger a Java memory dump into an arbitrary folder. The root cause of these issues are improper user data output validation and incorrect permissions configured on Jolokia.
