The RabbitMQ server is a robust andscalable implementation of an AMQP broker.A cross-site scripting vulnerability was discovered in RabbitMQ, whichallowed using api/ path info to inject and receive data.
A remote attackercould use this flaw to create an “/api/…” URL, forcing a server errorthat resulted in the server returning an HTML page with embedded text fromthe URL (not escaped). (CVE-2014-9649)A response-splitting vulnerability was discovered in RabbitMQ.An /api/definitions URL could be specified, which then caused an arbitraryadditional header to be returned.
A remote attacker could use this flaw toinject arbitrary HTTP headers and possibly gain access to secure data.(CVE-2014-9650)This update also fixes the following bug:* Previously, if the rabbit_mirror_queue_master did not return when usingHA and ‘auto_delete’ queues, the RabbitMQ server blocked channels duringtermination.
These channels would then have no associated connections andwere displayed as ‘unknown’.
