Ariadne Software are pleased to advise our customers that the CoolSpools application is not impacted by the Apache ActiveMQ vulnerability identified as CVE-2023-46604, and that no software updates are required to your CoolSpools application as a result of this vulnerability.

CVE-2023-46604 is a critical software vulnerability that affects applications built using Apache ActiveMQ, allowing remote execution of shell commands. It is a major concern to organisations worldwide, with many companies embarking on a wholesale review of their software to ensure that they are not susceptible to attack.
