Critical Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 9080

Synopsis

The remote host is running a web application that is affected by a remote code execution vulnerability.

Description

Versions of Apache ActiveMQ 5.x prior to 5.13.0 are affected by a remote code execution vulnerability in the broker due to unsafe unserialize calls of unauthenticated Java objects to the Apache Commons Collections (ACC) library.
