RocketMQ is cloud-native "messaging, eventing, streaming" real-time data processing platform, covering cloud-edge-device collaboration scenarios.


Apache RocketMQ could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary commands on the system, caused by a flaw when using the update configuration function.


By sending a specially crafted request to forge the RocketMQ protocol content, an attacker could exploit this vulnerability to execute arbitrary commands on the system.

rocketmqHome=-c $@|sh . echo uid;


By turning this into a traffic file and matching rule, we are able to detect attempts to execute arbitrary code on the system.
