Enterprise Linux 5.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having
moderate security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS)

Red Hat Enterprise MRG (Messaging, Realtime, and Grid) is a
next-generation IT infrastructure for enterprise computing. MRG offers
increased performance, reliability, interoperability, and faster
computing for enterprise customers.

Several cross-site scripting (XSS) flaws were found in the MRG
Management Console (Cumin). An authorized user on the local network
could use these flaws to perform cross-site scripting attacks against
MRG Management Console users. Note: Refer to the MRG Messaging User
Guide for information on configuring authentication and authorization
in the MRG Messaging broker. (CVE-2012-1575)

Users of Red Hat Enterprise MRG Management Console are advised to
upgrade to this updated package, which corrects these issues. The MRG
Management Console must be restarted ('service cumin restart') for
this update to take effect.
