Synopsis :

The remote Red Hat host is missing one or more security updates.

Description :

Updated Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6.1.0 packages
that fix two security issues are now available for Red Hat Enterprise
Linux 5 and 6.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having
important security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS)
base scores, which give detailed severity ratings, are available for
each vulnerability from the CVE links in the References section.

Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6 is a platform for Java
applications based on JBoss Application Server 7.

A flaw was discovered in the way authenticated connections were cached
on the server by remote-naming. After a user has successfully logged
in, a remote attacker could use a remoting client to log in as that
user without knowing their password, allowing them to access data and
perform actions with the privileges of that user. (CVE-2013-4128)

A flaw was discovered in the way connections for remote EJB
invocations via the EJB client API were cached on the server. After a
user has successfully logged in, a remote attacker could use an EJB
client to log in as that user without knowing their password, allowing
them to access data and perform actions with the privileges of that
user. (CVE-2013-4213)

These issues were discovered by Wolf-Dieter Fink of the Red Hat GSS
Team.

Warning: Before applying this update, back up your existing Red Hat
JBoss Enterprise Application Platform installation and deployed
applications.

All users of Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6.1.0 on
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and 6 are advised to upgrade to these
updated packages. The JBoss server process must be restarted for the
update to take effect.
