Subject: Re: CVE request: insufficient 'X-Forwarded-For' header
 validation in rabbitmq-server

> """
> RabbitMQ 3.3.0 introduced a mechanism (the 'loopback_users'
> configuration item) allowing access for some users to be restricted to
> only connect via localhost. By default the "guest" user is restricted in
> this way.
> Unfortunately, the HTTP framework used by the management plugin trusts
> the easily-forged "X-Forwarded-For" header when determining the remote
> address. It is therefore possible to subvert this access control
> mechanism for the HTTP API. Attackers would still need to know or guess

Use CVE-2014-9494.
