Synopsis :

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

Description :

An update is now available for Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application
Platform 7.0 for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security
impact of Important. 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.

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

This release of Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 7.0.7
serves as a replacement for Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application
Platform 7.0.6, and includes bug fixes and enhancements, which are
documented in the Release Notes linked to in the References.

Security Fix(es) :

* A deserialization flaw was discovered in jackson-databind which
could allow an unauthenticated user to perform code execution by
sending maliciously crafted input to the readValue method of the
ObjectMapper. (CVE-2017-7525)

* It was found that use of a JMS ObjectMessage does not safely handle
user-supplied data when deserializing objects. A remote attacker could
use this flaw to execute arbitrary code with the permissions of the
application using the JMS ObjectMessage. (CVE-2016-4978)

Red Hat would like to thank Liao Xinxi (NSFOCUS) for reporting
CVE-2017-7525.
