Synopsis :

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

Description :

Updated packages that provide Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application
Platform 6.4.0, and fix multiple security issues, several bugs, and
add various enhancements, are now available for Red Hat Enterprise
Linux 5.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having Important
security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base
scores, which give detailed severity ratings, are available for each
vulnerability from the CVE links in the References section.

Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6 is a platform for Java
applications based on JBoss Application Server 7.

It was found that a prior countermeasure in Apache WSS4J for
Bleichenbacher's attack on XML Encryption (CVE-2011-2487) threw an
exception that permitted an attacker to determine the failure of the
attempted attack, thereby leaving WSS4J vulnerable to the attack. The
original flaw allowed a remote attacker to recover the entire plain
text form of a symmetric key. (CVE-2015-0226)

It was found that Apache WSS4J permitted bypass of the
requireSignedEncryptedDataElements configuration property via XML
Signature wrapping attacks. A remote attacker could use this flaw to
modify the contents of a signed request. (CVE-2015-0227)

It was discovered that a JkUnmount rule for a subtree of a previous
JkMount rule could be ignored. This could allow a remote attacker to
potentially access a private artifact in a tree that would otherwise
not be accessible to them. (CVE-2014-8111)

A flaw was found in the way PicketLink's Service Provider and Identity
Provider handled certain requests. A remote attacker could use this
flaw to log to a victim's account via PicketLink. (CVE-2015-0277)

It was found that the Command Line Interface, as provided by Red Hat
Enterprise Application Platform, created a history file named
.jboss-cli-history in the user's home directory with insecure default
file permissions. This could allow a malicious local user to gain
information otherwise not accessible to them. (CVE-2014-3586)

The CVE-2015-0277 issue was discovered by Ondrej Kotek of Red Hat.

This release of JBoss Enterprise Application Platform also includes
bug fixes and enhancements. Documentation for these changes will be
available shortly from the JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6.4.0
Release Notes, linked to in the References.

All users who require JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6.4.0 on
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 should install these new packages. The
JBoss server process must be restarted for the update to take effect.
