Subject CVE-2018-1287: Apache JMeter binds RMI server to wildcard in distributed mode (based on RMI)
Date Sun, 11 Feb 2018 08:59:35 GMT
Severity: Important

Vendor: The Apache Software Foundation

Versions Affected: JMeter 2.X, 3.X


When using Distributed Test only (RMI based), jmeter server binds RMI
Registry to wildcard host.
This could allow an attacker to get Access to JMeterEngine and send
unauthorized code.
This only affect tests running in Distributed mode.


  * Users must use last version of Java 8 or Java 9
  * Users must upgrade to last JMeter 4.0 version

Besides, we remind users that in distributed mode, JMeter makes an
Architectural assumption
that it is operating on a 'safe' network. i.e. everyone with access to the
network is considered trusted.

This typically means a dedicated VPN or similar is being used.


  * Start JMeter server using either jmeter-server or jmeter -s
  * If JMeter listens on *:1099, you are vulnerable

This issue was reported responsibly to the Apache Tomcat Security Team
by Brenden Meeder.
