The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having low

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

A flaw was found in the JBoss Remoting component. A remote attacker
could use specially crafted input to cause the JBoss Remoting
listeners to become unresponsive, resulting in a denial of service
condition for services communicating via JBoss Remoting sockets.
