Resolution: Not A Problem
Affects Version/s: 5.15.10, 5.15.11
Fix Version/s: None
Sonatype Nexus auditor is reporting following log4j related security issue on Apache ActiveMQ 5.15.10 and 5.15.11. Recommendation is to use org.apache.logging.log4j:log4j-core version(s) 2.8.2 and above. Can you please check if Apache ActiveMQ is vulnerable and if so upgrade based on the recommendation?
Description from CVE
Included in Log4j 1.2 is a SocketServer class that is vulnerable to deserialization of untrusted data which can be exploited to remotely execute arbitrary code when combined with a deserialization gadget when listening to untrusted network traffic for log data. This affects Log4j versions up to 1.2 up to 1.2.17.
The log4j:log4j package is vulnerable to Remote Code Execution (RCE) due to Deserialization of Untrusted Data. The configureHierarchy and genericHierarchy methods in SocketServer.class do not verify if the file at a given file path contains any untrusted objects prior to deserializing them. A remote attacker can exploit this vulnerability by providing a path to crafted files, which result in arbitrary code execution when deserialized.
NOTE: Starting with version(s) 2.x, log4j:log4j was relocated to org.apache.logging.log4j:log4j-core. A variation of this vulnerability exists in org.apache.logging.log4j:log4j-core as CVE-2017-5645, in versions up to but excluding 2.8.2.
The application is vulnerable by using this component.
