How to fix?

Upgrade org.apache.tomee:openejb-loader to version 7.1.4, 7.0.9, 8.0.4 or higher.


org.apache.tomee:openejb-loader is a lightweight, yet powerful, JavaEE Application server with feature rich tooling.

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Authentication Bypass. If configured to use the embedded ActiveMQ broker, and the broker config is misconfigured, a JMX port is opened on TCP port 1099, which does not include authentication. CVE-2020-11969 previously addressed the creation of the JMX management interface, however the incomplete fix did not cover this edge case.
