Background info on this temp change -

-------- Original Message --------
Subject: MEJB Security Alert
Date: Thu, 6 Sep 2007 06:46:21 -0700 (PDT)
From: Anita Kulshreshtha <>

    We have discovered a security vulnerability in Geronimo, where the
management EJB (MEJB) allows unchallenged access to Geronimo internals.
A temporary workaround is to make the following modifications to the
configuration file at <GERONIMO_HOME>/var/config.xml. This will disable

<module name="org.apache.geronimo.configs/openejb/2.0.1/car">
<gbean name="EJBNetworkService">
<gbean load="false" name="ejb/mgmt/MEJB"/>

We will be releasing a new version soon to control access to MEJB in a
more secure way. This issue will be tracked in
