Red Hat Enterprise MRG (Messaging, Realtime, and Grid) is a next-generation IT infrastructure for enterprise computing. MRG offers increased performance, reliability, interoperability, and faster computing for enterprise customers.
The Qpid packages provide a message broker daemon that receives, stores and routes messages using the open AMQP messaging protocol along with run-time libraries for AMQP client applications developed using Qpid C++. Clients exchange messages with an AMQP message broker using the AMQP protocol.
It was discovered that the Qpid daemon (qpidd) did not restrict access to anonymous users when the ANONYMOUS mechanism was disallowed. (CVE-2015-0223)
Multiple flaws were found in the way the Qpid daemon (qpidd) processed certain protocol sequences. An unauthenticated attacker able to send a specially crafted protocol sequence set could use these flaws to crash qpidd. (CVE-2015-0203, CVE-2015-0224)
Red Hat would like to thank the Apache Software Foundation for reporting the CVE-2015-0203 issue. Upstream acknowledges G. Geshev from MWR Labs as the original reporter.
