RHEL 6 : jboss-ec2-eap (RHSA-2017:1260)

This script is Copyright (C) 2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

An update for jboss-ec2-eap is now available for Red Hat JBoss
Enterprise Application Platform 6.4 for RHEL 6.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security
impact of Moderate. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base
score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each
vulnerability from the CVE link(s) in the References section.

The jboss-ec2-eap packages provide scripts for Red Hat JBoss
Enterprise Application Platform running on the Amazon Web Services
(AWS) Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2).

With this update, the jboss-ec2-eap package has been updated to ensure
compatibility with Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform
6.4.15.

Security Fix(es) :

* It was discovered that under certain conditions RESTEasy could be
forced to parse a request with YamlProvider, resulting in
unmarshalling of potentially untrusted data. An attacker could
possibly use this flaw execute arbitrary code with the permissions of
the application using RESTEasy. (CVE-2016-9606)

Red Hat would like to thank Moritz Bechler (AgNO3 GmbH & Co. KG) for
reporting these issues.
