Synopsis :

The remote Red Hat host is missing a security update.

Description :

An updated jasperreports-server-pro package that fixes one security
issue and various bugs is now available.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having
moderate security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS)
base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from
the CVE link in the References section.

JasperReports Server is a reporting server.

A flaw was found in the way the Apache Xerces2 Java Parser processed
the SYSTEM identifier in DTDs. A remote attacker could provide a
specially crafted XML file, which once parsed by an application using
the Apache Xerces2 Java Parser, would lead to a denial of service
(application hang due to excessive CPU use). (CVE-2009-2625)

This update also fixes the following bugs :

* Adding a user to any ROLE caused an unexpected exception.

* Previously, the jasperreports-server-pro RPM spec file contained the
'%{dist}' tag on the 'Release' line. To comply with the packaging and
naming guidelines, the tag has been changed to '%{?dist}' with this
update. (BZ#868927)

* In some cases reports were opened with an incorrect list of
Entity/Entities. (BZ#842687)

Note: The jasperreports-server-pro package replaces
rhevm-reports-server from Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager

Users are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which corrects
these issues.
