Synopsis :

The remote Red Hat host is missing a security update.

Description :

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

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 Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization reports package provides a suite
of pre-configured reports and dashboards that enable you to monitor
the system. The reports module is based on JasperReports and
JasperServer, and can also be used to create ad-hoc reports.

XStream is a simple library used by the Red Hat Enterprise
Virtualization reports package to serialize and de-serialize objects
to and from XML.

It was found that XStream could deserialize arbitrary user-supplied
XML content, representing objects of any type. A remote attacker able
to pass XML to XStream could use this flaw to perform a variety of
attacks, including remote code execution in the context of the server
running the XStream application. (CVE-2013-7285)

All jasperreports-server-pro users are advised to upgrade to this
updated package, which contains a backported patch to correct this
issue.
