IBM MQ Unsupported Version Detection (credentialed check)

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 99907


A message queuing application installed on the remote host is no longer supported.


According to its self-reported version number, the installation of IBM MQ (formerly IBM WebSphere MQ) on the remote Windows host is no longer supported.

Lack of support implies that no new security patches for the product will be released by the vendor. As a result, it is likely to contain security vulnerabilities.


Upgrade to a version of IBM MQ that is currently supported.
