Description

The version of IBM MQ Server running on the remote host is affected by a vulnerability. Memory leak in queue-manager agents in IBM WebSphere MQ 8.x before 8.0.0.5 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (heap memory consumption) by triggering many errors.

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
