Subject [jira] Commented: (AMQ-1272) Stomp protocol does not correctly check authentication (security hole)
Date Sun, 24 Jun 2007 05:59:34 GMT

Tom Samplonius commented on AMQ-1272:
-------------------------------------

I have re-tested the patch.  I applied the patch (more or less) to activemq-5.0-20070621

The behaviour is a bit strange.  A Stomp producer simply blocks (I'm using Net::Stomp).  A
Stomp consumer does too.  Very odd.  At least unauthenticated Stomp clients can't steal messages.

I'm going to try to attach my patch (context diff).

> ActiveMQ does not correctly validate the username and password of Stomp clients.  A security
exception is generated, but ignored, leaving the client connected, and with full and unrestricted
access to ActiveMQ.
> Further description, and a partial patch:
> http://www.nabble.com/Getting-Stomp-support-to-a-usable-state...-tf3858629s2354.html#a11060452

> BTW, while the patch in the above post, is crude, however, leaving unauthenticated users
connected with full-access makes ActiveMQ and Stomp pretty unusable.  So please apply the
path, rather than do nothing.
