Updated JBoss Enterprise Application Platform (JBEAP) packages that

JBoss Enterprise Application Platform (JBEAP) is a middleware platform
for Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition (J2EE) applications.
This release of JBEAP for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 contains the
JBoss Application Server and JBoss Seam. This release serves as a
replacement to JBEAP 4.2.0.GA. It fixes several security issues :
The JFreeChart component was vulnerable to multiple cross-site
scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities. An attacker could misuse the image
map feature to inject arbitrary web script, or HTML, via several
attributes of the chart area. (CVE-2007-6306)
A vulnerability caused by exposing static Java methods was located
within the HSQLDB component. This could be utilized by an attacker to
execute arbitrary static Java methods. (CVE-2007-4575)
The setOrder method in the org.jboss.seam.framework.Query class did
not correctly validate user-supplied parameters. This vulnerability
allowed remote attackers to inject, and execute, arbitrary Enterprise
JavaBeans Query Language (EJB QL) commands via the order parameter.
These updated packages include bug fixes and enhancements which are
not listed here. For a full list, please refer to the JBEAP 4.2.0CP02
Warning: before applying this update, please backup the JBEAP
