Synopsis :

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

Description :

Updated packages that provide Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application
Platform 6.2.2 and fix two security issues, several bugs, and add
various enhancements are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

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

It was found that when JBoss Web processed a series of HTTP requests
in which at least one request contained either multiple content-length
headers, or one content-length header with a chunked transfer-encoding
header, JBoss Web would incorrectly handle the request. A remote
attacker could use this flaw to poison a web cache, perform cross-site
scripting (XSS) attacks, or obtain sensitive information from other
requests. (CVE-2013-4286)

It was found that Java Security Manager permissions configured via a
policy file were not properly applied, causing all deployed
applications to be granted the java.security.AllPermission permission.
In certain cases, an attacker could use this flaw to circumvent
expected security measures to perform actions which would otherwise be
restricted. (CVE-2014-0093)

The CVE-2014-0093 issue was discovered by Josef Cacek of the Red Hat
JBoss EAP Quality Engineering team.

This release serves as an update for Red Hat JBoss Enterprise
Application Platform 6.2, and includes bug fixes and enhancements.
Documentation for these changes will be available shortly from the Red
Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6.2.2 Release Notes, linked
to in the References.

All users of Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6.2 on Red
Hat Enterprise Linux 5 are advised to upgrade to these updated
packages. The JBoss server process must be restarted for the update to
take effect.
