Apache ActiveMQ 5.x < 5.13.2 Multiple Vulnerabilities

medium Nessus Plugin ID 90025


The remote host is running a web application that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


The version of Apache ActiveMQ running on the remote host is 5.x prior to 5.13.2. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- A clickjacking vulnerability exists in the web-based administration console due to not setting the X-Frame-Options header in HTTP responses. A remote attacker can exploit this to trick a user into executing administrative tasks. (CVE-2016-0734)

- Multiple cross-site scripting vulnerabilities exists in the web-based administration console to improper validation of user-supplied input. A remote attacker can exploit these, via a specially crafted request, to execute arbitrary script code in a user's browser session. (CVE-2016-0782)

Note that CVE-2016-0734 was partially fixed in 5.11.4 and 5.12.3 by setting the X-Frame-Options header for Servlets and JSPs but not static content. Therefore, the fix for these versions is incomplete, and it is recommended that users upgrade to 5.13.2 or later.


Upgrade to Apache ActiveMQ version 5.13.2 or later.
