Apache ActiveMQ createDestination.action cross-site scripting
|activemq-createdestination-xss (57397)||Medium Risk|
Apache ActiveMQ is vulnerable to cross-site scripting, caused by improper validation of user-supplied input by the createDestination.action script. A remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability using JMSDestination to inject malicious script into a Web page which would be executed in a victim's Web browser within the security context of the hosting Web site, once the page is viewed. An attacker could use this vulnerability to steal the victim's cookie-based authentication credentials.
Upgrade to the latest version of ActiveMQ (5.3.1 or later), available from the Apache Software Foundation Web site. See References.
