Apache ActiveMQ provides a SOA infrastructure to connect processes across heterogeneous systems.
A flaw was found in Apache Camel's parsing of the FILE_NAME header. A remote attacker able to submit messages to a Camel route, which would write the provided message to a file, could provide expression language (EL) expressions in the FILE_NAME header, which would be evaluated on the server. This could lead to arbitrary remote code execution in the context of the Camel server process. (CVE-2013-4330)
It was found that the Apache Camel XSLT component allowed XSL stylesheets to call external Java methods. A remote attacker able to submit messages to a Camel route could use this flaw to perform arbitrary remote code execution in the context of the Camel server process. (CVE-2014-0003)
It was discovered that the Spring OXM wrapper did not expose any property for disabling entity resolution when using the JAXB unmarshaller. A remote attacker could use this flaw to conduct XML External Entity (XXE) attacks on websites, and read files in the context of the user running the application server. The patch for this flaw disables external entity processing by default, and provides a configuration directive to re-enable it. (CVE-2013-4152)
The HawtJNI Library class wrote native libraries to a predictable file name in /tmp/ when the native libraries were bundled in a JAR file, and no custom library path was specified. A local attacker could overwrite these native libraries with malicious versions during the window between when HawtJNI writes them and when they are executed.
The CVE-2013-2035 issue was discovered by Florian Weimer of the Red Hat Product Security Team, and the CVE-2014-0003 issue was discovered by David Jorm of the Red Hat Security Response Team.
All users of Red Hat OpenShift Enterprise 2.0 are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which corrects these issues.
SolutionUpdate the affected activemq and / or activemq-client packages.
