Synopsis :

Description :

Updated JBoss Enterprise Application Platform (JBoss EAP) 4.3 packages
that fix various issues are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux
4 as JBEAP 4.3.0.CP04.

This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the
Red Hat Security Response Team.

JBoss Enterprise Application Platform (JBoss EAP) is the
market-leading platform for innovative and scalable Java applications.
JBoss EAP integrates the JBoss Application Server with JBoss Hibernate
and JBoss Seam into a complete, simple enterprise solution.

This release of JBoss EAP for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 serves as a
replacement for JBEAP 4.3.0.CP03.

These updated packages include bug fixes and enhancements which are
detailed in the release notes. The link to the release notes is
available in the References section of this errata.

The following security issue is also fixed with this release :

The request handler in JBossWS did not correctly verify the resource
path when serving WSDL files for custom web service endpoints. This
allowed remote attackers to read arbitrary XML files with the
permissions of the EAP process. (CVE-2009-0027)

Warning: before applying this update, please back up the JBoss EAP
'server/[configuration]/deploy/' directory, and any other customized
configuration files.

All users of JBoss EAP 4.3 on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 are advised
to upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve these issues.
