IBM WebSphere MQ 6.x < 6.0.2.7 / 7.x < 7.0.1.0 Queue Manager Buffer Overflow RCE

critical Nessus Plugin ID 57709

Synopsis

The remote Windows host has a service installed that is affected by a remote code execution vulnerability.

Description

The IBM WebSphere MQ server installed on the remote Windows host is version 6.x prior to 6.0.2.7 or version 7.x prior to 7.0.1.0. It is, therefore, affected by a buffer overflow flaw in the queue manager. A remote, unauthenticated attacker, by submitting a specially crafted request, can exploit this to execute arbitrary code in the context of the application.

Solution

Upgrade to WebSphere MQ 6.0.2.7 / 7.0.1.0 or later.
