How to fix?

Upgrade org.apache.qpid:qpid-broker-core to version 6.1.0 or higher.


org.apache.qpid:qpid-broker-core is a package that manages Broker core functionality and initial configuration.

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Improper Input Validation. In, when the broker is configured to allow plaintext passwords, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (broker termination) via a crafted authentication attempt, which triggers an uncaught exception.
