Synopsis :

The remote Red Hat host is missing a security update.

Description :

An updated jakarta-commons-fileupload package that fixes one security
issue is now available for Red Hat JBoss Web Server 1.0.2 for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 5 and 6.

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

The Apache Commons FileUpload component can be used to add a file
upload capability to your applications.

A flaw was found in the way the DiskFileItem class handled NULL
characters in file names. A remote attacker able to supply a
serialized instance of the DiskFileItem class, which will be
deserialized on a server, could use this flaw to write arbitrary
content to any location on the server that is accessible to the user
running the application server process. (CVE-2013-2186)

Warning: Before applying the update, back up your existing Red Hat
JBoss Enterprise Web Server installation (including all applications
and configuration files).

All users of Red Hat JBoss Web Server 1.0.2 on Red Hat Enterprise
Linux 5 and 6 are advised to upgrade to this updated package. The
JBoss server process must be restarted for the update to take effect.
